Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Basic logistic function

The function ƒ(x) = 1 / 1 + e-x

• Conjugate axis of a hyperbola

The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

• Conversion factor

A ratio equal to 1, used for unit conversion

• Degree of a polynomial (function)

The largest exponent on the variable in any of the terms of the polynomial (function)

• Divergence

A sequence or series diverges if it does not converge

• Division algorithm for polynomials

Given ƒ(x), d(x) ? 0 there are unique polynomials q1x (quotient) and r1x(remainder) ƒ1x2 = d1x2q1x2 + r1x2 with with either r1x2 = 0 or degree of r(x) 6 degree of d1x2

• Gaussian elimination

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

• Linear function

A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = mx + b, where and b are real numbers

A measure that tells how widely distributed data are.

• Normal distribution

A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

• Parameter

See Parametric equations.

• Parametric equations

Equations of the form x = ƒ(t) and y = g(t) for all t in an interval I. The variable t is the parameter and I is the parameter interval.

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

The measure of a central angle whose intercepted arc has a length equal to the circle’s radius.

• Removable discontinuity at x = a

lim x:a- ƒ(x) = limx:a+ ƒ(x) but either the common limit is not equal ƒ(a) to ƒ(a) or is not defined

• Row echelon form

A matrix in which rows consisting of all 0’s occur only at the bottom of the matrix, the first nonzero entry in any row with nonzero entries is 1, and the leading 1’s move to the right as we move down the rows.

• Summation notation

The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series

• Term of a polynomial (function)

An expression of the form anxn in a polynomial (function).

• Time plot

A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.

• x-coordinate

The directed distance from the y-axis yz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the first number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
