Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Chord of a conic

A line segment with endpoints on the conic

• 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

• De Moivre’s theorem

(r(cos ? + i sin ?))n = r n (cos n? + i sin n?)

• End behavior

The behavior of a graph of a function as.

• Explanatory variable

A variable that affects a response variable.

• Finite series

Sum of a finite number of terms.

• Independent events

Events A and B such that P(A and B) = P(A)P(B)

• Index of summation

See Summation notation.

• Intercept

Point where a curve crosses the x-, y-, or z-axis in a graph.

• Inverse composition rule

The composition of a one-toone function with its inverse results in the identity function.

• Inverse cotangent function

The function y = cot-1 x

• Matrix, m x n

A rectangular array of m rows and n columns of real numbers

• Partial fractions

The process of expanding a fraction into a sum of fractions. The sum is called the partial fraction decomposition of the original fraction.

• Random behavior

Behavior that is determined only by the laws of probability.

• Solve graphically

Use a graphical method, including use of a hand sketch or use of a grapher. When appropriate, the approximate solution should be confirmed algebraically

• Sphere

A set of points in Cartesian space equally distant from a fixed point called the center.

• Summation notation

The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series

• System

A set of equations or inequalities.

• Time plot

A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.

• y-coordinate

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