Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Composition of functions

    (f ? g) (x) = f (g(x))

  • Directed line segment

    See Arrow.

  • Focal axis

    The line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix of a conic.

  • Focal width of a parabola

    The length of the chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis.

  • Integrable over [a, b] Lba

    ƒ1x2 dx exists.

  • Inverse cosecant function

    The function y = csc-1 x

  • Invertible linear system

    A system of n linear equations in n variables whose coefficient matrix has a nonzero determinant.

  • Linear regression line

    The line for which the sum of the squares of the residuals is the smallest possible

  • Median (of a data set)

    The middle number (or the mean of the two middle numbers) if the data are listed in order.

  • Negative linear correlation

    See Linear correlation.

  • Order of magnitude (of n)

    log n.

  • Remainder theorem

    If a polynomial f(x) is divided by x - c , the remainder is ƒ(c)

  • Resolving a vector

    Finding the horizontal and vertical components of a vector.

  • Sample space

    Set of all possible outcomes of an experiment.

  • Sample survey

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population, usually through direct questioning.

  • Sine

    The function y = sin x.

  • Sinusoid

    A function that can be written in the form f(x) = a sin (b (x - h)) + k or f(x) = a cos (b(x - h)) + k. The number a is the amplitude, and the number h is the phase shift.

  • Standard deviation

    A measure of how a data set is spread

  • Stretch of factor c

    A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

  • Tangent line of ƒ at x = a

    The line through (a, ƒ(a)) with slope ƒ'(a) provided ƒ'(a) exists.
