Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook

If u < v , then u + w < v + w

• Angle between vectors

The angle formed by two nonzero vectors sharing a common initial point

• Aphelion

The farthest point from the Sun in a planet’s orbit

• Coefficient matrix

A matrix whose elements are the coefficients in a system of linear equations

• Composition of functions

(f ? g) (x) = f (g(x))

• End behavior asymptote of a rational function

A polynomial that the function approaches as.

• Fitting a line or curve to data

Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

• Graph of parametric equations

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs determined by the parametric equations.

• Heron’s formula

The area of ¢ABC with semiperimeter s is given by 2s1s - a21s - b21s - c2.

• Horizontal component

See Component form of a vector.

• Instantaneous velocity

The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

• Ordinary annuity

An annuity in which deposits are made at the same time interest is posted.

• Pascal’s triangle

A number pattern in which row n (beginning with n = 02) consists of the coefficients of the expanded form of (a+b)n.

• Quantitative variable

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

• Reflection through the origin

x, y and (-x,-y) are reflections of each other through the origin.

• Residual

The difference y1 - (ax 1 + b), where (x1, y1)is a point in a scatter plot and y = ax + b is a line that fits the set of data.

• Tangent line of ƒ at x = a

The line through (a, ƒ(a)) with slope ƒ'(a) provided ƒ'(a) exists.

• Upper bound for ƒ

Any number B for which ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Vector
