Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Bias

A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses

• Constant of variation

See Power function.

• Continuous at x = a

lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

• Difference of complex numbers

(a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i

• Finite sequence

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

• Focal width of a parabola

The length of the chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis.

• Hypotenuse

Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

• Inferential statistics

Using the science of statistics to make inferences about the parameters in a population from a sample.

• Instantaneous rate of change

See Derivative at x = a.

• Interval notation

Notation used to specify intervals, pp. 4, 5.

• Mapping

A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

• Ordered set

A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

• Polynomial function

A function in which ƒ(x)is a polynomial in x, p. 158.

A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c, where a, b, and c are real numbers, and a ? 0.

• Randomization

The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.

• Right circular cone

The surface created when a line is rotated about a second line that intersects but is not perpendicular to the first line.

• Semimajor axis

The distance from the center to a vertex of an ellipse.

• Triangular form

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

• Vector equation for a line in space

The line through P0(x 0, y0, z0) in the direction of the nonzero vector V = <a, b, c> has vector equation r = r0 + tv , where r = <x,y,z>.

• yz-plane

The points (0, y, z) in Cartesian space.
