Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Divergence

A sequence or series diverges if it does not converge

• DMS measure

The measure of an angle in degrees, minutes, and seconds

• Eccentricity

A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

• equation of a quadratic function

ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c(a ? 0)

• Head minus tail (HMT) rule

An arrow with initial point (x1, y1 ) and terminal point (x2, y2) represents the vector <8x 2 - x 1, y2 - y19>

• Inverse reflection principle

If the graph of a relation is reflected across the line y = x , the graph of the inverse relation results.

See Polynomial function in x

• Nappe

See Right circular cone.

• Nautical mile

Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

• Negative linear correlation

See Linear correlation.

• Parallel lines

Two lines that are both vertical or have equal slopes.

• Quantitative variable

A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

• Quotient rule of logarithms

logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0

• Random variable

A function that assigns real-number values to the outcomes in a sample space.

• Response variable

A variable that is affected by an explanatory variable.

• Row echelon form

A matrix in which rows consisting of all 0’s occur only at the bottom of the matrix, the first nonzero entry in any row with nonzero entries is 1, and the leading 1’s move to the right as we move down the rows.

• Slant line

A line that is neither horizontal nor vertical

• Standard position (angle)

An angle positioned on a rectangular coordinate system with its vertex at the origin and its initial side on the positive x-axis

• Third quartile

See Quartile.

• Vector equation for a line in space

The line through P0(x 0, y0, z0) in the direction of the nonzero vector V = <a, b, c> has vector equation r = r0 + tv , where r = <x,y,z>.
