Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Algebraic model

    An equation that relates variable quantities associated with phenomena being studied

  • Amplitude

    See Sinusoid.

  • Common difference

    See Arithmetic sequence.

  • Difference of functions

    (ƒ - g)(x) = ƒ(x) - g(x)

  • Elimination method

    A method of solving a system of linear equations

  • Equivalent systems of equations

    Systems of equations that have the same solution.

  • General form (of a line)

    Ax + By + C = 0, where A and B are not both zero.

  • Graph of a function ƒ

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs (x, ƒ(x)) for x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Integers

    The numbers . . ., -3, -2, -1, 0,1,2,...2

  • Inverse properties

    a + 1-a2 = 0, a # 1a

  • Local maximum

    A value ƒ(c) is a local maximum of ƒ if there is an open interval I containing c such that ƒ(x) < ƒ(c) for all values of x in I

  • Parametric equations

    Equations of the form x = ƒ(t) and y = g(t) for all t in an interval I. The variable t is the parameter and I is the parameter interval.

  • Parametrization

    A set of parametric equations for a curve.

  • Perihelion

    The closest point to the Sun in a planet’s orbit.

  • Permutation

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

  • Pythagorean

    Theorem In a right triangle with sides a and b and hypotenuse c, c2 = a2 + b2

  • Right-hand limit of ƒ at x a

    The limit of ƒ as x approaches a from the right.

  • Secant line of ƒ

    A line joining two points of the graph of ƒ.

  • Third quartile

    See Quartile.

  • Vector

    An ordered pair <a, b> of real numbers in the plane, or an ordered triple <a, b, c> of real numbers in space. A vector has both magnitude and direction.
