Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Cardioid

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

• Convergence of a series

A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

• Empty set

A set with no elements

• equation of a quadratic function

ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c(a ? 0)

• Fundamental

Theorem of Algebra A polynomial function of degree has n complex zeros (counting multiplicity).

• General form (of a line)

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

• Initial side of an angle

See Angle.

• Inverse variation

See Power function.

• Main diagonal

The diagonal from the top left to the bottom right of a square matrix

• Order of an m x n matrix

The order of an m x n matrix is m x n.

• Placebo

In an experimental study, an inactive treatment that is equivalent to the active treatment in every respect except for the factor about which an inference is to be made. Subjects in a blind experiment do not know if they have been given the active treatment or the placebo.

• Pseudo-random numbers

Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

• Regression model

An equation found by regression and which can be used to predict unknown values.

• Rigid transformation

A transformation that leaves the basic shape of a graph unchanged.

• RRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

• Sample space

Set of all possible outcomes of an experiment.

• Statistic

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

• Upper bound for ƒ

Any number B for which ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Weighted mean

A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.

• Work

The product of a force applied to an object over a given distance W = ƒFƒ ƒAB!ƒ.
