Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Angle of elevation

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

• Arrow

The notation PQ denoting the directed line segment with initial point P and terminal point Q.

• Average velocity

The change in position divided by the change in time.

• Convergence of a sequence

A sequence {an} converges to a if limn: q an = a

• Exponential function

A function of the form ƒ(x) = a ? bx,where ?0, b > 0 b ?1

• Exponential regression

A procedure for fitting an exponential function to a set of data.

• Five-number summary

The minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum of a data set.

• Infinite discontinuity at x = a

limx:a + x a ƒ(x) = q6 or limx:a - ƒ(x) = q.

• Integers

The numbers . . ., -3, -2, -1, 0,1,2,...2

• Magnitude of a vector

The magnitude of <a, b> is 2a2 + b2. The magnitude of <a, b, c> is 2a2 + b2 + c2

• Nautical mile

Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

• Opens upward or downward

A parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c opens upward if a > 0 and opens downward if a < 0.

• Origin

The number zero on a number line, or the point where the x- and y-axes cross in the Cartesian coordinate system, or the point where the x-, y-, and z-axes cross in Cartesian three-dimensional space

• Parallel lines

Two lines that are both vertical or have equal slopes.

• Polar coordinates

The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

• Row echelon form

A matrix in which rows consisting of all 0’s occur only at the bottom of the matrix, the first nonzero entry in any row with nonzero entries is 1, and the leading 1’s move to the right as we move down the rows.

• Scientific notation

A positive number written as c x 10m, where 1 ? c < 10 and m is an integer.

• Sum of two vectors

<u1, u2> + <v1, v2> = <u1 + v1, u2 + v2> <u1 + v1, u2 + v2, u3 + v3>

• Whole numbers

The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ... .

• y-coordinate

The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
