Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Arithmetic sequence

A sequence {an} in which an = an-1 + d for every integer n ? 2 . The number d is the common difference.

• Branches

The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

• Coefficient

The real number multiplied by the variable(s) in a polynomial term

• Compound fraction

A fractional expression in which the numerator or denominator may contain fractions

• Conjugate axis of a hyperbola

The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

• Distance (in Cartesian space)

The distance d(P, Q) between and P(x, y, z) and Q(x, y, z) or d(P, Q) ((x ) - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2 + (z 1 - z 2)2

• Explanatory variable

A variable that affects a response variable.

• Inverse cotangent function

The function y = cot-1 x

• Irrational numbers

Real numbers that are not rational, p. 2.

• Midpoint (in Cartesian space)

For the line segment with endpoints (x 1, y1, z 1) and (x2, y2, z2), ax 1 + x 22 ,y1 + y22 ,z 1 + z 22 b

• Natural logarithmic function

The inverse of the exponential function y = ex, denoted by y = ln x.

• Normal curve

The graph of ƒ(x) = e-x2/2

• One-to-one rule of exponents

x = y if and only if bx = by.

• Outliers

Data items more than 1.5 times the IQR below the first quartile or above the third quartile.

• Product of functions

(ƒg)(x) = ƒ(x)g(x)

• Semimajor axis

The distance from the center to a vertex of an ellipse.

• Semiperimeter of a triangle

One-half of the sum of the lengths of the sides of a triangle.

• Transformation

A function that maps real numbers to real numbers.

• Vertical translation

A shift of a graph up or down.

• Viewing window

The rectangular portion of the coordinate plane specified by the dimensions [Xmin, Xmax] by [Ymin, Ymax].
