Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Associative properties

a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c, a(bc) = (ab)c.

• 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

• Bounded interval

An interval that has finite length (does not extend to ? or -?)

• Control

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

• Correlation coefficient

A measure of the strength of the linear relationship between two variables, pp. 146, 162.

• Derivative of ƒ at x a

ƒ'(a) = lim x:a ƒ(x) - ƒ(a) x - a provided the limit exists

• Focal axis

The line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix of a conic.

• Frequency (in statistics)

The number of individuals or observations with a certain characteristic.

• Geometric sequence

A sequence {an}in which an = an-1.r for every positive integer n ? 2. The nonzero number r is called the common ratio.

• Inferential statistics

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

• Infinite limit

A special case of a limit that does not exist.

• Inverse sine function

The function y = sin-1 x

• Jump discontinuity at x a

limx:a - ƒ1x2 and limx:a + ƒ1x2 exist but are not equal

• Negative angle

Angle generated by clockwise rotation.

• nth power of a

The number with n factors of a , where n is the exponent and a is the base.

• Projection of u onto v

The vector projv u = au # vƒvƒb2v

• Standard form: equation of a circle

(x - h)2 + (y - k2) = r 2

• Transformation

A function that maps real numbers to real numbers.

• x-coordinate

The directed distance from the y-axis yz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the first number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.

• Zero of a function

A value in the domain of a function that makes the function value zero.
