Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook

If u < v , then u + w < v + w

• Algebraic model

An equation that relates variable quantities associated with phenomena being studied

• Augmented matrix

A matrix that represents a system of equations.

• Census

An observational study that gathers data from an entire population

• Complements or complementary angles

Two angles of positive measure whose sum is 90°

• End behavior

The behavior of a graph of a function as.

• equation of an ellipse

(x - h2) a2 + (y - k)2 b2 = 1 or (y - k)2 a2 + (x - h)2 b2 = 1

• Exponent

See nth power of a.

• Ordered pair

A pair of real numbers (x, y), p. 12.

• Phase shift

See Sinusoid.

• Product rule of logarithms

ogb 1RS2 = logb R + logb S, R > 0, S > 0,

• Pseudo-random numbers

Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

• Quartile

The first quartile is the median of the lower half of a set of data, the second quartile is the median, and the third quartile is the median of the upper half of the data.

• Quotient identities

tan ?= sin ?cos ?and cot ?= cos ? sin ?

• Range of a function

The set of all output values corresponding to elements in the domain.

• Residual

The difference y1 - (ax 1 + b), where (x1, y1)is a point in a scatter plot and y = ax + b is a line that fits the set of data.

• Sample survey

A process for gathering data from a subset of a population, usually through direct questioning.

• Solve a system

To find all solutions of a system.

• Statistic

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

• Unit vector in the direction of a vector

A unit vector that has the same direction as the given vector.
