Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Algebraic expression

A combination of variables and constants involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, powers, and roots

• Common difference

See Arithmetic sequence.

• Component form of a vector

If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

• Conjugate axis of a hyperbola

The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

• Continuous at x = a

lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

• Correlation coefficient

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

• Equation

A statement of equality between two expressions.

• Equivalent arrows

Arrows that have the same magnitude and direction.

• Extracting square roots

A method for solving equations in the form x 2 = k.

• First quartile

See Quartile.

• Higher-degree polynomial function

A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

• Identity function

The function ƒ(x) = x.

• Median (of a data set)

The middle number (or the mean of the two middle numbers) if the data are listed in order.

• Partial fractions

The process of expanding a fraction into a sum of fractions. The sum is called the partial fraction decomposition of the original fraction.

Any one of the four parts into which a plane is divided by the perpendicular coordinate axes.

• Second

Angle measure equal to 1/60 of a minute.

• Sinusoidal regression

A procedure for fitting a curve y = a sin (bx + c) + d to a set of data

• Subtraction

a - b = a + (-b)

• Vertical line test

A test for determining whether a graph is a function.

• Weights

See Weighted mean.
