Abstract

In nearly every first course in calculus, the student is introduced to severe.l unusual curves in his study of polar coordinates or special problems in graphing. These curves are unusual in appearance when graphed and require special definition because of particular characteristics. The purpose of this paper is to provide a thorough discussion of some of these unusual curves, including precise definitions, peculiar characteristics of their graphs, and interrelationships of these curves whenever such relationships exist.
