Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arcsine function

    See Inverse sine function.

  • Binomial probability

    In an experiment with two possible outcomes, the probability of one outcome occurring k times in n independent trials is P1E2 = n!k!1n - k2!pk11 - p) n-k where p is the probability of the outcome occurring once

  • Conic section (or conic)

    A curve obtained by intersecting a double-napped right circular cone with a plane

  • Constant term

    See Polynomial function

  • De Moivre’s theorem

    (r(cos ? + i sin ?))n = r n (cos n? + i sin n?)

  • Focal length of a parabola

    The directed distance from the vertex to the focus.

  • Index

    See Radical.

  • Linear programming problem

    A method of solving certain problems involving maximizing or minimizing a function of two variables (called an objective function) subject to restrictions (called constraints)

  • Linear regression

    A procedure for finding the straight line that is the best fit for the data

  • Lower bound for real zeros

    A number c is a lower bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) Z 0 whenever x < c

  • Mode of a data set

    The category or number that occurs most frequently in the set.

  • Negative association

    A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with lower values of the other variable.

  • Numerical derivative of ƒ at a

    NDER f(a) = ƒ1a + 0.0012 - ƒ1a - 0.00120.002

  • Outliers

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

  • Quartic function

    A degree 4 polynomial function.

  • Reflection

    Two points that are symmetric with respect to a lineor a point.

  • Semimajor axis

    The distance from the center to a vertex of an ellipse.

  • System

    A set of equations or inequalities.

  • Variable

    A letter that represents an unspecified number.
