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.

• Addition principle of probability.

P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B). If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)

• Angle

Union of two rays with a common endpoint (the vertex). The beginning ray (the initial side) can be rotated about its endpoint to obtain the final position (the terminal side)

• Base

See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

• Combinations of n objects taken r at a time

There are nCr = n! r!1n - r2! such combinations,

• Cotangent

The function y = cot x

• Distributive property

a(b + c) = ab + ac and related properties

• End behavior asymptote of a rational function

A polynomial that the function approaches as.

• Frequency table (in statistics)

A table showing frequencies.

• Grapher or graphing utility

Graphing calculator or a computer with graphing software.

• 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

• Ordered set

A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

• Parallelogram representation of vector addition

Geometric representation of vector addition using the parallelogram determined by the position vectors.

• Pole

See Polar coordinate system.

• Quartic regression

A procedure for fitting a quartic function to a set of data.

• Random numbers

Numbers that can be used by researchers to simulate randomness in scientific studies (they are usually obtained from lengthy tables of decimal digits that have been generated by verifiably random natural phenomena).

• Rational zeros theorem

A procedure for finding the possible rational zeros of a polynomial.

• Stretch of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

• Variance

The square of the standard deviation.

• 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.
