Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Completing the square

A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square

• Continuous at x = a

lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

• Data

Facts collected for statistical purposes (singular form is datum)

• Differentiable at x = a

ƒ'(a) exists

• DMS measure

The measure of an angle in degrees, minutes, and seconds

• equation of a parabola

(x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) or (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h)

• Fundamental

Theorem of Algebra A polynomial function of degree has n complex zeros (counting multiplicity).

• Imaginary axis

See Complex plane.

• Limaçon

A graph of a polar equation r = a b sin u or r = a b cos u with a > 0 b > 0

• Linear regression line

The line for which the sum of the squares of the residuals is the smallest possible

• Natural logarithmic regression

A procedure for fitting a logarithmic curve to a set of data.

• Natural numbers

The numbers 1, 2, 3, . . . ,.

• Order of an m x n matrix

The order of an m x n matrix is m x n.

• Ordered set

A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

• Replication

The principle of experimental design that minimizes the effects of chance variation by repeating the experiment multiple times.

• Richter scale

A logarithmic scale used in measuring the intensity of an earthquake.

• Root of a number

See Principal nth root.

• Slope

Ratio change in y/change in x

• Standard form of a polynomial function

ƒ(x) = an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0
