On Volumes of Revolution and Centroids in Polar Coordinates.
Fay, Temple H.
Mathematics and Computer Education, v16 n2 p108-11 Spr 1982
Results are presented of an impromptu exploration of polar formulas for volumes of revolution for certain plane regions. The material is thought to be unique, and to offer room for student exploration. It is felt pupil investigation can lead to increased pupil interest in both polar coordinates and calculus. (MP)
