Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute value of a complex number

    The absolute value of the complex number z = a + b is given by ?a2+b2; also, the length of the segment from the origin to z in the complex plane.

  • Binomial

    A polynomial with exactly two terms

  • Combinations of n objects taken r at a time

    There are nCr = n! r!1n - r2! such combinations,

  • Degree

    Unit of measurement (represented by the symbol ) for angles or arcs, equal to 1/360 of a complete revolution

  • Double-blind experiment

    A blind experiment in which the researcher gathering data from the subjects is not told which subjects have received which treatment

  • Fitting a line or curve to data

    Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

  • General form (of a line)

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

  • Identity matrix

    A square matrix with 1’s in the main diagonal and 0’s elsewhere, p. 534.

  • Interquartile range

    The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

  • Lower bound test for real zeros

    A test for finding a lower bound for the real zeros of a polynomial

  • Multiplication principle of probability

    If A and B are independent events, then P(A and B) = P(A) # P(B). If Adepends on B, then P(A and B) = P(A|B) # P(B)

  • Multiplicative identity for matrices

    See Identity matrix

  • Natural logarithm

    A logarithm with base e.

  • Opposite

    See Additive inverse of a real number and Additive inverse of a complex number.

  • Phase shift

    See Sinusoid.

  • Piecewise-defined function

    A function whose domain is divided into several parts with a different function rule applied to each part, p. 104.

  • Repeated zeros

    Zeros of multiplicity ? 2 (see Multiplicity).

  • Statistic

    A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

  • Sum of an infinite series

    See Convergence of a series

  • Time plot

    A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.
