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.
