Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Census

    An observational study that gathers data from an entire population

  • Chord of a conic

    A line segment with endpoints on the conic

  • Circle graph

    A circular graphical display of categorical data

  • Correlation coefficient

    A measure of the strength of the linear relationship between two variables, pp. 146, 162.

  • Deductive reasoning

    The process of utilizing general information to prove a specific hypothesis

  • Difference of two vectors

    <u1, u2> - <v1, v2> = <u1 - v1, u2 - v2> or <u1, u2, u3> - <v1, v2, v3> = <u1 - v1, u2 - v2, u3 - v3>

  • Focal axis

    The line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix of a conic.

  • Graph of parametric equations

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs determined by the parametric equations.

  • Interval notation

    Notation used to specify intervals, pp. 4, 5.

  • Law of cosines

    a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc cos A, b2 = a2 + c2 - 2ac cos B, c2 = a2 + b2 - 2ab cos C

  • Normal curve

    The graph of ƒ(x) = e-x2/2

  • Parallelogram representation of vector addition

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

  • Parameter

    See Parametric equations.

  • Parametrization

    A set of parametric equations for a curve.

  • Plane in Cartesian space

    The graph of Ax + By + Cz + D = 0, where A, B, and C are not all zero.

  • Remainder polynomial

    See Division algorithm for polynomials.

  • Sinusoid

    A function that can be written in the form f(x) = a sin (b (x - h)) + k or f(x) = a cos (b(x - h)) + k. The number a is the amplitude, and the number h is the phase shift.

  • 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.

  • Terms of a sequence

    The range elements of a sequence.

  • Zero of a function

    A value in the domain of a function that makes the function value zero.
