Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Angle of elevation

The acute angle formed by the line of sight (upward) and the horizontal

• Annual percentage yield (APY)

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

• Bounded

A function is bounded if there are numbers b and B such that b ? ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of f.

• Demand curve

p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

• Division

a b = aa 1 b b, b Z 0

• equation of an ellipse

(x - h2) a2 + (y - k)2 b2 = 1 or (y - k)2 a2 + (x - h)2 b2 = 1

• Expanded form

The right side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Graphical model

A visible representation of a numerical or algebraic model.

• Histogram

A graph that visually represents the information in a frequency table using rectangular areas proportional to the frequencies.

• Horizontal component

See Component form of a vector.

• Initial side of an angle

See Angle.

• kth term of a sequence

The kth expression in the sequence

• Linear regression

A procedure for finding the straight line that is the best fit for the data

• Normal curve

The graph of ƒ(x) = e-x2/2

• Permutation

An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.

• Pseudo-random numbers

Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

• Solve a system

To find all solutions of a system.

• Standard form of a complex number
