Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute value of a vector

    See Magnitude of a vector.

  • Annual percentage rate (APR)

    The annual interest rate

  • Annuity

    A sequence of equal periodic payments.

  • Confounding variable

    A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable

  • Control

    The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to rule out other factors when making inferences about a particular explanatory variable

  • Directed distance

    See Polar coordinates.

  • Discriminant

    For the equation ax 2 + bx + c, the expression b2 - 4ac; for the equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, the expression B2 - 4AC

  • Equal complex numbers

    Complex numbers whose real parts are equal and whose imaginary parts are equal.

  • Graph of an equation in x and y

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs x, y that are solutions of the equation.

  • Implied domain

    The domain of a function’s algebraic expression.

  • Least-squares line

    See Linear regression line.

  • Odd function

    A function whose graph is symmetric about the origin (ƒ(-x) = -ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of f).

  • Orthogonal vectors

    Two vectors u and v with u x v = 0.

  • Outcomes

    The various possible results of an experiment.

  • Radicand

    See Radical.

    A matrix in row echelon form with every column that has a leading 1 having 0’s in all other positions.

  • Statistic

    A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

  • Wrapping function

    The function that associates points on the unit circle with points on the real number line

  • x-coordinate

    The directed distance from the y-axis yz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the first number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
