Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Argument of a complex number

The argument of a + bi is the direction angle of the vector {a,b}.

• Blocking

A feature of some experimental designs that controls for potential differences between subject groups by applying treatments randomly within homogeneous blocks of subjects

• Compounded k times per year

Interest compounded using the formula A = Pa1 + rkbkt where k = 1 is compounded annually, k = 4 is compounded quarterly k = 12 is compounded monthly, etc.

• Decreasing on an interval

A function f is decreasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a negative change in ƒ(x)

• Direction vector for a line

A vector in the direction of a line in three-dimensional space

• Empty set

A set with no elements

• Frequency

Reciprocal of the period of a sinusoid.

• Frequency (in statistics)

The number of individuals or observations with a certain characteristic.

• Horizontal translation

A shift of a graph to the left or right.

• Instantaneous velocity

The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

• Intermediate Value Theorem

If ƒ is a polynomial function and a < b , then ƒ assumes every value between ƒ(a) and ƒ(b).

• Normal curve

The graph of ƒ(x) = e-x2/2

• Obtuse triangle

A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

• Positive association

A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with higher values of the other variable, p. 717.

• Right circular cone

The surface created when a line is rotated about a second line that intersects but is not perpendicular to the first line.

• Secant line of ƒ

A line joining two points of the graph of ƒ.

• Simple harmonic motion

Motion described by d = a sin wt or d = a cos wt

• Sinusoidal regression

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

• Work

The product of a force applied to an object over a given distance W = ƒFƒ ƒAB!ƒ.

• Wrapping function

The function that associates points on the unit circle with points on the real number line
