Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Amplitude

See Sinusoid.

• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Central angle

An angle whose vertex is the center of a circle

• Cycloid

The graph of the parametric equations

• Extracting square roots

A method for solving equations in the form x 2 = k.

• Extraneous solution

Any solution of the resulting equation that is not a solution of the original equation.

• 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.

• Horizontal asymptote

The line is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of a function ƒ if lim x:- q ƒ(x) = or lim x: q ƒ(x) = b

• Imaginary unit

The complex number.

• Inequality symbol or

<,>,<,>.

• Irrational zeros

Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

• Leibniz notation

The notation dy/dx for the derivative of ƒ.

• Pseudo-random numbers

Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

• Remainder polynomial

See Division algorithm for polynomials.

• Semimajor axis

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

• Standard form of a polynomial function

ƒ(x) = an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0

• Stemplot (or stem-and-leaf plot)

An arrangement of a numerical data set into a specific tabular format.

• Tangent line of ƒ at x = a

The line through (a, ƒ(a)) with slope ƒ'(a) provided ƒ'(a) exists.

• Vertical asymptote

The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

• Work

The product of a force applied to an object over a given distance W = ƒFƒ ƒAB!ƒ.
