Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Equal matrices

    Matrices that have the same order and equal corresponding elements.

  • Exponential growth function

    Growth modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? b a > 0, b > 1 .

  • Fitting a line or curve to data

    Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

  • Focal width of a parabola

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

  • Hyperboloid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating a hyperbola about its transverse axis, p. 607.

  • Implicitly defined function

    A function that is a subset of a relation defined by an equation in x and y.

  • Inverse tangent function

    The function y = tan-1 x

  • Linear inequality in x

    An inequality that can be written in the form ax + b < 0 ,ax + b … 0 , ax + b > 0, or ax + b Ú 0, where a and b are real numbers and a Z 0

  • Mean (of a set of data)

    The sum of all the data divided by the total number of items

  • Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)

    For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

  • Multiplication principle of counting

    A principle used to find the number of ways an event can occur.

  • Observational study

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.

  • Parametric curve

    The graph of parametric equations.

  • Quadratic regression

    A procedure for fitting a quadratic function to a set of data.

  • Real number line

    A horizontal line that represents the set of real numbers.

  • Riemann sum

    A sum where the interval is divided into n subintervals of equal length and is in the ith subinterval.

  • Union of two sets A and B

    The set of all elements that belong to A or B or both.

  • Unit vector

    Vector of length 1.

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • Vertical line test

    A test for determining whether a graph is a function.
