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

The absolute value of the complex number z = a + b is given by ?a2+b2; also, the length of the segment from the origin to z in the complex plane.

• Angle of depression

The acute angle formed by the line of sight (downward) and the horizontal

• Center

The central point in a circle, ellipse, hyperbola, or sphere

• Differentiable at x = a

ƒ'(a) exists

• Directed distance

See Polar coordinates.

• Directed line segment

See Arrow.

• Distance (in a coordinate plane)

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

• 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

• Focal length of a parabola

The directed distance from the vertex to the focus.

• Histogram

A graph that visually represents the information in a frequency table using rectangular areas proportional to the frequencies.

• Interquartile range

The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

• Invertible linear system

A system of n linear equations in n variables whose coefficient matrix has a nonzero determinant.

• Law of cosines

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

• Right triangle

A triangle with a 90° angle.

• Terms of a sequence

The range elements of a sequence.

• Window dimensions

The restrictions on x and y that specify a viewing window. See Viewing window.

• Wrapping function

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

• y-intercept

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

• Zero factorial

See n factorial.

• Zoom out

A procedure of a graphing utility used to view more of the coordinate plane (used, for example, to find theend behavior of a function).
