Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Convergence of a series

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

  • Derivative of ƒ

    The function defined by ƒ'(x) = limh:0ƒ(x + h) - ƒ(x)h for all of x where the limit exists

  • 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

  • equation of a parabola

    (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) or (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h)

  • Focal width of a parabola

    The length of the chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis.

  • Graph of a relation

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs of the relation.

  • Law of cosines

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

  • Linear function

    A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = mx + b, where and b are real numbers

  • Multiplication property of equality

    If u = v and w = z, then uw = vz

  • Observational study

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.

  • Odd function

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

  • Parameter interval

    See Parametric equations.

  • Product of complex numbers

    (a + bi)(c + di) = (ac - bd) + (ad + bc)i

  • Right circular cone

    The surface created when a line is rotated about a second line that intersects but is not perpendicular to the first line.

  • Right triangle

    A triangle with a 90° angle.

  • Singular matrix

    A square matrix with zero determinant

  • Sinusoid

    A function that can be written in the form f(x) = a sin (b (x - h)) + k or f(x) = a cos (b(x - h)) + k. The number a is the amplitude, and the number h is the phase shift.

  • Solve by substitution

    Method for solving systems of linear equations.

  • y-intercept

    A point that lies on both the graph and the y-axis.

  • z-coordinate

    The directed distance from the xy-plane to a point in space, or the third number in an ordered triple.
