Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive inverse of a complex number

The opposite of a + bi, or -a - bi

• Angle

Union of two rays with a common endpoint (the vertex). The beginning ray (the initial side) can be rotated about its endpoint to obtain the final position (the terminal side)

• Boundary

The set of points on the “edge” of a region

• Composition of functions

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

• Convergence of a series

A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

• Dot product

The number found when the corresponding components of two vectors are multiplied and then summed

• Equivalent arrows

Arrows that have the same magnitude and direction.

• Equivalent systems of equations

Systems of equations that have the same solution.

• Expanded form

The right side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Focus, foci

See Ellipse, Hyperbola, Parabola.

• Hypotenuse

Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

• Inequality

A statement that compares two quantities using an inequality symbol

• Instantaneous rate of change

See Derivative at x = a.

• Limit

limx:aƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ(x) gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily close (but not equal) to a

• Mean (of a set of data)

The sum of all the data divided by the total number of items

• Nappe

See Right circular cone.

• Randomization

The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.

• Secant line of ƒ

A line joining two points of the graph of ƒ.

• Weighted mean

A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.

• xz-plane

The points x, 0, z in Cartesian space.
