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.

  • Radian

    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.
