Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Cardioid

    A limaçon whose polar equation is r = a ± a sin ?, or r = a ± a cos ?, where a > 0.

  • Coefficient of determination

    The number r2 or R2 that measures how well a regression curve fits the data

  • Component form of a vector

    If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

  • Endpoint of an interval

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

  • Extraneous solution

    Any solution of the resulting equation that is not a solution of the original equation.

  • Finite sequence

    A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

  • Future value of an annuity

    The net amount of money returned from an annuity.

  • Higher-degree polynomial function

    A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

  • Lower bound test for real zeros

    A test for finding a lower bound for the real zeros of a polynomial

  • Odd-even identity

    For a basic trigonometric function f, an identity relating f(x) to f(-x).

  • Proportional

    See Power function

  • Pseudo-random numbers

    Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

  • Quantitative variable

    A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

  • Radicand

    See Radical.

  • Resolving a vector

    Finding the horizontal and vertical components of a vector.

  • Sequence of partial sums

    The sequence {Sn} , where Sn is the nth partial sum of the series, that is, the sum of the first n terms of the series.

  • Tree diagram

    A visualization of the Multiplication Principle of Probability.

  • Vertical stretch or shrink

    See Stretch, Shrink.

  • Window dimensions

    The restrictions on x and y that specify a viewing window. See Viewing window.

  • Zoom out

    A procedure of a graphing utility used to view more of the coordinate plane (used, for example, to find theend behavior of a function).
