It is the mother polar bear that teaches her cubs (usually two cubs) by example. Cubs often hamper their mother's hunting, but eventually the cubs become able to exist on their own. A mother polar bear will try to avoid meeting an adult male polar bear, as there is a danger the male may kill and eat her cubs.
Well the father bear now has to feed the cubs and the mother bear has to stay home and take care of them.

No, they are solitary unless the bear is a mother with cubs.
