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

Combinations of n objects taken r at a time
There are nCr = n! r!1n  r2! such combinations,

Complex number
An expression a + bi, where a (the real part) and b (the imaginary part) are real numbers

Conjugate axis of a hyperbola
The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

Cubic
A degree 3 polynomial function

End behavior asymptote of a rational function
A polynomial that the function approaches as.

Exponential form
An equation written with exponents instead of logarithms.

Hyperbola
A set of points in a plane, the absolute value of the difference of whose distances from two fixed points (the foci) is a constant.

Hypotenuse
Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

Leading coefficient
See Polynomial function in x

Multiplicative inverse of a real number
The reciprocal of b, or 1/b, b Z 0

Natural logarithm
A logarithm with base e.

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

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

Right triangle
A triangle with a 90° angle.

Series
A finite or infinite sum of terms.

Solution of a system in two variables
An ordered pair of real numbers that satisfies all of the equations or inequalities in the system

Weighted mean
A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.

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

xyplane
The points x, y, 0 in Cartesian space.
