Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive inverse of a real number

The opposite of b , or -b

• Arcsine function

See Inverse sine function.

• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Cosine

The function y = cos x

• Dihedral angle

An angle formed by two intersecting planes,

• Domain of validity of an identity

The set of values of the variable for which both sides of the identity are defined

• Endpoint of an interval

A real number that represents one “end” of an interval.

• Finite series

Sum of a finite number of terms.

• Heron’s formula

The area of ¢ABC with semiperimeter s is given by 2s1s - a21s - b21s - c2.

• Interval

Connected subset of the real number line with at least two points, p. 4.

• Linear regression

A procedure for finding the straight line that is the best fit for the data

A measure that tells how widely distributed data are.

• Numerical model

A model determined by analyzing numbers or data in order to gain insight into a phenomenon, p. 64.

• Polar coordinate system

• Product rule of logarithms

ogb 1RS2 = logb R + logb S, R > 0, S > 0,

• Pythagorean

Theorem In a right triangle with sides a and b and hypotenuse c, c2 = a2 + b2

• Solve algebraically

Use an algebraic method, including paper and pencil manipulation and obvious mental work, with no calculator or grapher use. When appropriate, the final exact solution may be approximated by a calculator

• Tree diagram

A visualization of the Multiplication Principle of Probability.

• Union of two sets A and B
