Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Binomial theorem

A theorem that gives an expansion formula for (a + b)n

• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Branches

The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

• 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)

• Derivative of ƒ at x a

ƒ'(a) = lim x:a ƒ(x) - ƒ(a) x - a provided the limit exists

• Differentiable at x = a

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

• Frequency table (in statistics)

A table showing frequencies.

• Logistic regression

A procedure for fitting a logistic curve to a set of data

For any positive integer n, n factorial is n! = n.(n - 1) . (n - 2) .... .3.2.1; zero factorial is 0! = 1

• Nonsingular matrix

A square matrix with nonzero determinant

• Polar equation

An equation in r and ?.

• Statistic

A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

• Synthetic division

A procedure used to divide a polynomial by a linear factor, x - a

• Triangular number

A number that is a sum of the arithmetic series 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n for some natural number n.

• Variable (in statistics)
