Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute maximum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute maximum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ.

If u = v and w = z , then u + w = v + z

• Ambiguous case

The case in which two sides and a nonincluded angle can determine two different triangles

• Bearing

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

• Cardioid

A limaçon whose polar equation is r = a ± a sin ?, or r = a ± a cos ?, where a > 0.

• Categorical variable

In statistics, a nonnumerical variable such as gender or hair color. Numerical variables like zip codes, in which the numbers have no quantitative significance, are also considered to be categorical.

• Directed line segment

See Arrow.

• Hypotenuse

Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

• Inverse variation

See Power function.

• Lower bound of f

Any number b for which b < ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ

• Minute

Angle measure equal to 1/60 of a degree.

• Mode of a data set

The category or number that occurs most frequently in the set.

• Numerical derivative of ƒ at a

NDER f(a) = ƒ1a + 0.0012 - ƒ1a - 0.00120.002

• Power function

A function of the form ƒ(x) = k . x a, where k and a are nonzero constants. k is the constant of variation and a is the power.

• Projectile motion

The movement of an object that is subject only to the force of gravity

An angle in standard position whose terminal side lies on an axis.

An equation that can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 01a ? 02

The formula x = -b 2b2 - 4ac2a used to solve ax 2 + bx + c = 0.

• Real zeros

Zeros of a function that are real numbers.

• Riemann sum

A sum where the interval is divided into n subintervals of equal length and is in the ith subinterval.
