Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Composition of functions

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

• Directed line segment

See Arrow.

• Elements of a matrix

See Matrix element.

• Focal axis

The line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix of a conic.

• Frequency (in statistics)

The number of individuals or observations with a certain characteristic.

• Law of cosines

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

• 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

• Median (of a data set)

The middle number (or the mean of the two middle numbers) if the data are listed in order.

• Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)

For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

• Multiplicative identity for matrices

See Identity matrix

• Pole

See Polar coordinate system.

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

• Rational function

Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

• Rational zeros theorem

A procedure for finding the possible rational zeros of a polynomial.

• Real zeros

Zeros of a function that are real numbers.

• RRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

• Synthetic division

A procedure used to divide a polynomial by a linear factor, x - a

• Tangent line of ƒ at x = a

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

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.

• Variation

See Power function.
