Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Control

The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to rule out other factors when making inferences about a particular explanatory variable

• Divisor of a polynomial

See Division algorithm for polynomials.

• Domain of validity of an identity

The set of values of the variable for which both sides of the identity are defined

• Five-number summary

The minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum of a data set.

• Frequency distribution

See Frequency table.

• Head minus tail (HMT) rule

An arrow with initial point (x1, y1 ) and terminal point (x2, y2) represents the vector <8x 2 - x 1, y2 - y19>

• Inverse composition rule

The composition of a one-toone function with its inverse results in the identity function.

• Mathematical model

A mathematical structure that approximates phenomena for the purpose of studying or predicting their behavior

• Measure of an angle

The number of degrees or radians in an angle

• Natural numbers

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

• Negative linear correlation

See Linear correlation.

• One-to-one rule of logarithms

x = y if and only if logb x = logb y.

• Polar axis

See Polar coordinate system.

• Pythagorean identities

sin2 u + cos2 u = 1, 1 + tan2 u = sec2 u, and 1 + cot2 u = csc2 u

• Quartic function

A degree 4 polynomial function.

• Right triangle

A triangle with a 90° angle.

• Root of an equation

A solution.

• Solve graphically

Use a graphical method, including use of a hand sketch or use of a grapher. When appropriate, the approximate solution should be confirmed algebraically

• Sum of a finite arithmetic series

Sn = na a1 + a2 2 b = n 2 32a1 + 1n - 12d4,
