Coefficient of determination
The number r2 or R2 that measures how well a regression curve fits the data

Convergence of a series
A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

Coordinate(s) of a point
The number associated with a point on a number line, or the ordered pair associated with a point in the Cartesian coordinate plane, or the ordered triple associated with a point in the Cartesian threedimensional space

Eccentricity
A nonnegative number that specifies how offcenter the focus of a conic is

Empty set
A set with no elements

End behavior
The behavior of a graph of a function as.

equation of a parabola
(x  h)2 = 4p(y  k) or (y  k)2 = 4p(x  h)

Expanded form of a series
A series written explicitly as a sum of terms (not in summation notation).
