Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Angle

    Union of two rays with a common endpoint (the vertex). The beginning ray (the initial side) can be rotated about its endpoint to obtain the final position (the terminal side)

  • Circular functions

    Trigonometric functions when applied to real numbers are circular functions

  • Completing the square

    A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square

  • Conditional probability

    The probability of an event A given that an event B has already occurred

  • Distance (in a coordinate plane)

    The distance d(P, Q) between P(x, y) and Q(x, y) d(P, Q) = 2(x 1 - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2

  • Index

    See Radical.

  • Integers

    The numbers . . ., -3, -2, -1, 0,1,2,...2

  • Intermediate Value Theorem

    If ƒ is a polynomial function and a < b , then ƒ assumes every value between ƒ(a) and ƒ(b).

  • Law of cosines

    a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc cos A, b2 = a2 + c2 - 2ac cos B, c2 = a2 + b2 - 2ab cos C

  • Length of a vector

    See Magnitude of a vector.

  • Logistic growth function

    A model of population growth: ƒ1x2 = c 1 + a # bx or ƒ1x2 = c1 + ae-kx, where a, b, c, and k are positive with b < 1. c is the limit to growth

  • Measure of center

    A measure of the typical, middle, or average value for a data set

  • Normal distribution

    A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

  • Perihelion

    The closest point to the Sun in a planet’s orbit.

  • Perpendicular lines

    Two lines that are at right angles to each other

  • Polar coordinate system

    A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

  • Pythagorean identities

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

  • Quadratic formula

    The formula x = -b 2b2 - 4ac2a used to solve ax 2 + bx + c = 0.

  • Unit vector in the direction of a vector

    A unit vector that has the same direction as the given vector.

  • Weights

    See Weighted mean.
