Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Annual percentage yield (APY)

The rate that would give the same return if interest were computed just once a year

• Arcsecant function

See Inverse secant function.

• Bearing

Measure of the clockwise angle that the line of travel makes with due north

• Cone

See Right circular cone.

• Cosecant

The function y = csc x

• Distance (on a number line)

The distance between real numbers a and b, or |a - b|

• Elementary row operations

The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

• Equivalent equations (inequalities)

Equations (inequalities) that have the same solutions.

• Line of travel

The path along which an object travels

• Linear correlation

A scatter plot with points clustered along a line. Correlation is positive if the slope is positive and negative if the slope is negative

• Logarithmic re-expression of data

Transformation of a data set involving the natural logarithm: exponential regression, natural logarithmic regression, power regression

• Natural numbers

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

• Odd function

A function whose graph is symmetric about the origin (ƒ(-x) = -ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of f).

• Parabola

The graph of a quadratic function, or the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point (the focus) and a fixed line (the directrix).

• Placebo

In an experimental study, an inactive treatment that is equivalent to the active treatment in every respect except for the factor about which an inference is to be made. Subjects in a blind experiment do not know if they have been given the active treatment or the placebo.

• Power rule of logarithms

logb Rc = c logb R, R 7 0.

• Product of a scalar and a vector

The product of scalar k and vector u = 8u1, u29 1or u = 8u1, u2, u392 is k.u = 8ku1, ku291or k # u = 8ku1, ku2, ku392,

• Quotient of complex numbers

a + bi c + di = ac + bd c2 + d2 + bc - ad c2 + d2 i

• Trigonometric form of a complex number

r(cos ? + i sin ?)

• Xmax

The x-value of the right side of the viewing window,.
