Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Bias

A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses

• Circle graph

A circular graphical display of categorical data

• Directed line segment

See Arrow.

• Geometric sequence

A sequence {an}in which an = an-1.r for every positive integer n ? 2. The nonzero number r is called the common ratio.

• Geometric series

A series whose terms form a geometric sequence.

• Graph of an inequality in x and y

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

• Instantaneous rate of change

See Derivative at x = a.

• Logarithmic regression

See Natural logarithmic regression

• Maximum r-value

The value of |r| at the point on the graph of a polar equation that has the maximum distance from the pole

• Median (of a data set)

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

• Negative association

A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with lower values of the other variable.

• Newton’s law of cooling

T1t2 = Tm + 1T0 - Tm2e-kt

• Opens upward or downward

A parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c opens upward if a > 0 and opens downward if a < 0.

• Polynomial function

A function in which ƒ(x)is a polynomial in x, p. 158.

• Power-reducing identity

A trigonometric identity that reduces the power to which the trigonometric functions are raised.

The formula x = -b 2b2 - 4ac2a used to solve ax 2 + bx + c = 0.

• RRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

• Statistic

A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

• Whole numbers

The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ... .
