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

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

  • Annuity

    A sequence of equal periodic payments.

  • Combinatorics

    A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

  • Elementary row operations

    The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

  • Endpoint of an interval

    A real number that represents one “end” of an interval.

  • Explicitly defined sequence

    A sequence in which the kth term is given as a function of k.

  • Fibonacci sequence

    The sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, . . ..

  • Inequality symbol or

    <,>,<,>.

  • Inverse of a matrix

    The inverse of a square matrix A, if it exists, is a matrix B, such that AB = BA = I , where I is an identity matrix.

  • Opens upward or downward

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

  • Parametrization

    A set of parametric equations for a curve.

  • 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.

  • Semiminor axis

    The distance from the center of an ellipse to a point on the ellipse along a line perpendicular to the major axis.

  • Symmetric about the origin

    A graph in which (-x, -y) is on the the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, ?) or (r, ? + ?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

  • Triangular form

    A special form for a system of linear equations that facilitates finding the solution.

  • xz-plane

    The points x, 0, z in Cartesian space.

  • y-coordinate
