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

Exponential growth function
Growth modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? b a > 0, b > 1 .

Focus, foci
See Ellipse, Hyperbola, Parabola.

Frequency (in statistics)
The number of individuals or observations with a certain characteristic.

Index of summation
See Summation notation.

Inverse cosine function
The function y = cos1 x

Inverse cotangent function
The function y = cot1 x

Measure of an angle

Natural logarithmic regression
A procedure for fitting a logarithmic curve to a set of data.

Parabola
The graph of a quadratic function, or the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point (the focus) and a fixed line (the directrix).

Parametric equations for a line in space
The line through P0(x 0, y0, z 0) in the direction of the nonzero vector v = <a, b, c> has parametric equations x = x 0 + at, y = y 0 + bt, z = z0 + ct.

See Trigonometric form of a complex number.

Random numbers
Numbers that can be used by researchers to simulate randomness in scientific studies (they are usually obtained from lengthy tables of decimal digits that have been generated by verifiably random natural phenomena).

Transformation
A function that maps real numbers to real numbers.

zcoordinate
The directed distance from the xyplane to a point in space, or the third number in an ordered triple.
