The method of the polarization is discussed in this paper. Linear, circular and elliptical polarizations are also reported. A linear polarization satisfies the same phase and different amplitudes, circular polarization with the same amplitude and phase difference of π 2, while the others is elliptically polarization wave. In order to make the course understand easily, MATLAB software is used as a platform in electromagnetic fields and waves of classroom teaching after many years of accumulated some teaching experience. The difficult vector analysis and abstract concept could be simplified; the vector and concept could be visualized by figures, which makes the course vividly, enriching the teaching content and improving a better teaching effect.
