Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Arcsecant function

See Inverse secant function.

• Branches

The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

• Conic section (or conic)

A curve obtained by intersecting a double-napped right circular cone with a plane

• Eccentricity

A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

• Equally likely outcomes

Outcomes of an experiment that have the same probability of occurring.

• Exponential growth function

Growth modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? b a > 0, b > 1 .

• Graph of a function ƒ

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs (x, ƒ(x)) for x in the domain of ƒ.

• Graph of an inequality in x and y

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

• Irrational zeros

Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

• Linear correlation

A scatter plot with points clustered along a line. Correlation is positive if the slope is positive and negative if the slope is negative

• Mathematical induction

A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

• Nautical mile

Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

• Parametric curve

The graph of parametric equations.

• Polar coordinate system

A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

The graph in three dimensions of a seconddegree equation in three variables.

• Resistant measure

A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

• Sample standard deviation

The standard deviation computed using only a sample of the entire population.

• Second quartile

See Quartile.

• Variable (in statistics)

A characteristic of individuals that is being identified or measured.

• Vertex of an angle

See Angle.
