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.

• 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).
