Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Acceleration due to gravity

g ? 32 ft/sec2 ? 9.8 m/sec

• Axis of symmetry

See Line of symmetry.

• Convergence of a sequence

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

• Division algorithm for polynomials

Given ƒ(x), d(x) ? 0 there are unique polynomials q1x (quotient) and r1x(remainder) ƒ1x2 = d1x2q1x2 + r1x2 with with either r1x2 = 0 or degree of r(x) 6 degree of d1x2

• Fitting a line or curve to data

Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

• Gaussian elimination

A method of solving a system of n linear equations in n unknowns.

• Implied domain

The domain of a function’s algebraic expression.

• Major axis

The line segment through the foci of an ellipse with endpoints on the ellipse

• n-set

A set of n objects.

• Open interval

An interval that does not include its endpoints.

• Outliers

Data items more than 1.5 times the IQR below the first quartile or above the third quartile.

• Polar coordinate system

A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

The distance from a point on a circle (or a sphere) to the center of the circle (or the sphere).

• Rational zeros theorem

A procedure for finding the possible rational zeros of a polynomial.

• 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.

• Subtraction

a - b = a + (-b)

• Vertical stretch or shrink

See Stretch, Shrink.

• Whole numbers

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