Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute minimum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute minimum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x)for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Aphelion

The farthest point from the Sun in a planet’s orbit

• Average rate of change of ƒ over [a, b]

The number ƒ(b) - ƒ(a) b - a, provided a ? b.

• Compounded continuously

Interest compounded using the formula A = Pert

• Constant

A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

• Course

See Bearing.

• Exponential decay function

Decay modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? bx, a > 0 with 0 < b < 1.

• Graph of a polar equation

The set of all points in the polar coordinate system corresponding to the ordered pairs (r,?) that are solutions of the polar equation.

• Intermediate Value Theorem

If ƒ is a polynomial function and a < b , then ƒ assumes every value between ƒ(a) and ƒ(b).

• Lower bound of f

Any number b for which b < ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ

• LRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the left-hand endpoint of each subinterval

• Mathematical model

A mathematical structure that approximates phenomena for the purpose of studying or predicting their behavior

• Midpoint (in Cartesian space)

For the line segment with endpoints (x 1, y1, z 1) and (x2, y2, z2), ax 1 + x 22 ,y1 + y22 ,z 1 + z 22 b

• Multiplicity

The multiplicity of a zero c of a polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 is the number of times the factor (x - c) (x - z 2) Á (x - z n)

• Numerical derivative of ƒ at a

NDER f(a) = ƒ1a + 0.0012 - ƒ1a - 0.00120.002

• Polar coordinates

The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

• Polynomial function

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

• Right triangle

A triangle with a 90° angle.

• Right-hand limit of ƒ at x a

The limit of ƒ as x approaches a from the right.

• Time plot

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