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

• Cosecant

The function y = csc x

• Directed angle

See Polar coordinates.

• Direction angle of a vector

The angle that the vector makes with the positive x-axis

• Ellipsoid of revolution

A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

• Gaussian elimination

A method of solving a system of n linear equations in n unknowns.

• Identity matrix

A square matrix with 1’s in the main diagonal and 0’s elsewhere, p. 534.

• Infinite discontinuity at x = a

limx:a + x a ƒ(x) = q6 or limx:a - ƒ(x) = q.

• Irrational zeros

Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

• Limit to growth

See Logistic growth function.

• Measure of an angle

The number of degrees or radians in an angle

• Outliers

Data items more than 1.5 times the IQR below the first quartile or above the third quartile.

• Parametric curve

The graph of parametric equations.

• Product of matrices A and B

The matrix in which each entry is obtained by multiplying the entries of a row of A by the corresponding entries of a column of B and then adding

• Quantitative variable

A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

• Quartile

The first quartile is the median of the lower half of a set of data, the second quartile is the median, and the third quartile is the median of the upper half of the data.

• Row operations

See Elementary row operations.

• Singular matrix

A square matrix with zero determinant

• Union of two sets A and B

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

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.
