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

    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
