Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Acute triangle

    A triangle in which all angles measure less than 90°

  • Boxplot (or box-and-whisker plot)

    A graph that displays a five-number summary

  • Branches

    The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

  • Distance (in Cartesian space)

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

  • Elements of a matrix

    See Matrix element.

  • Ellipsoid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

  • Inequality symbol or

    <,>,<,>.

  • Leading term

    See Polynomial function in x.

  • Line of symmetry

    A line over which a graph is the mirror image of itself

  • n factorial

    For any positive integer n, n factorial is n! = n.(n - 1) . (n - 2) .... .3.2.1; zero factorial is 0! = 1
