Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Acute angle

An angle whose measure is between 0° and 90°

• Angle of elevation

The acute angle formed by the line of sight (upward) and the horizontal

• Cycloid

The graph of the parametric equations

• Ellipse

The set of all points in the plane such that the sum of the distances from a pair of fixed points (the foci) is a constant

• Expanded form

The right side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Exponential decay function

Decay modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? bx, a > 0 with 0 < b < 1.

• Horizontal asymptote

The line is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of a function ƒ if lim x:- q ƒ(x) = or lim x: q ƒ(x) = b

• Increasing on an interval

A function ƒ is increasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a positive change in.

• Infinite limit

A special case of a limit that does not exist.

• Nonsingular matrix

A square matrix with nonzero determinant

• Normal curve

The graph of ƒ(x) = e-x2/2

• Permutation

An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.

• Power-reducing identity

A trigonometric identity that reduces the power to which the trigonometric functions are raised.

• Quantitative variable

A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

• Range (in statistics)

The difference between the greatest and least values in a data set.

• Resistant measure

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

• Semimajor axis

The distance from the center to a vertex of an ellipse.

• 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.

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.

• y-coordinate

The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
