This applet behaves much like a graphing calculator but adds two features: the user has options to (1) plot points on the user-specified polar curve given by r(t) beginning at a user-specified value of t; and (2) fill in the area bounded by a user-specified polar curve given by r(t) beginning at a user-specified value of t.
