Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Additive inverse of a real number

    The opposite of b , or -b

  • Axis of symmetry

    See Line of symmetry.

  • Complements or complementary angles

    Two angles of positive measure whose sum is 90°

  • Control

    The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to rule out other factors when making inferences about a particular explanatory variable

  • Derivative of ƒ

    The function defined by ƒ'(x) = limh:0ƒ(x + h) - ƒ(x)h for all of x where the limit exists

  • Finite sequence

    A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

  • Five-number summary

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

  • Inequality

    A statement that compares two quantities using an inequality symbol

  • Initial point

    See Arrow.

  • Length of a vector

    See Magnitude of a vector.

  • Line graph

    A graph of data in which consecutive data points are connected by line segments

  • Local extremum

    A local maximum or a local minimum

  • Magnitude of an arrow

    The magnitude of PQ is the distance between P and Q

  • Mathematical induction

    A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

  • Median (of a data set)

    The middle number (or the mean of the two middle numbers) if the data are listed in order.

  • Multiplication principle of probability

    If A and B are independent events, then P(A and B) = P(A) # P(B). If Adepends on B, then P(A and B) = P(A|B) # P(B)

  • Polynomial in x

    An expression that can be written in the form an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0, where n is a nonnegative integer, the coefficients are real numbers, and an ? 0. The degree of the polynomial is n, the leading coefficient is an, the leading term is anxn, and the constant term is a0. (The number 0 is the zero polynomial)

  • Reflection through the origin

    x, y and (-x,-y) are reflections of each other through the origin.

  • Scientific notation

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

  • Upper bound for ƒ

    Any number B for which ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.
