Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Base

    See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

  • Binomial theorem

    A theorem that gives an expansion formula for (a + b)n

  • Branches

    The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

  • Cube root

    nth root, where n = 3 (see Principal nth root),

  • Directed angle

    See Polar coordinates.

  • Directed distance

    See Polar coordinates.

  • End behavior asymptote of a rational function

    A polynomial that the function approaches as.

  • Exponential growth function

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

  • Factor

    In algebra, a quantity being multiplied in a product. In statistics, a potential explanatory variable under study in an experiment, .

  • Irrational zeros

    Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

  • Law of sines

    sin A a = sin B b = sin C c

  • Linear correlation

    A scatter plot with points clustered along a line. Correlation is positive if the slope is positive and negative if the slope is negative

  • Measure of spread

    A measure that tells how widely distributed data are.

  • Product of a scalar and a vector

    The product of scalar k and vector u = 8u1, u29 1or u = 8u1, u2, u392 is k.u = 8ku1, ku291or k # u = 8ku1, ku2, ku392,

  • Solve a triangle

    To find one or more unknown sides or angles of a triangle

  • Statistic

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

  • Symmetric about the origin

    A graph in which (-x, -y) is on the the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, ?) or (r, ? + ?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

  • Unit ratio

    See Conversion factor.

  • Vector

    An ordered pair <a, b> of real numbers in the plane, or an ordered triple <a, b, c> of real numbers in space. A vector has both magnitude and direction.

  • y-axis

    Usually the vertical coordinate line in a Cartesian coordinate system with positive direction up, pp. 12, 629.
