Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive identity for the complex numbers

0 + 0i is the complex number zero

• Angle between vectors

The angle formed by two nonzero vectors sharing a common initial point

• Arc length formula

The length of an arc in a circle of radius r intercepted by a central angle of u radians is s = r u.

• Axis of symmetry

See Line of symmetry.

• Directed distance

See Polar coordinates.

• Gaussian elimination

A method of solving a system of n linear equations in n unknowns.

• 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

• Odd-even identity

For a basic trigonometric function f, an identity relating f(x) to f(-x).

• Phase shift

See Sinusoid.

• Polar axis

See Polar coordinate system.

• Polynomial function

A function in which ƒ(x)is a polynomial in x, p. 158.

• Quantitative variable

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

• Range (in statistics)

The difference between the greatest and least values in a data set.

• Re-expression of data

A transformation of a data set.

• Real zeros

Zeros of a function that are real numbers.

• Removable discontinuity at x = a

lim x:a- ƒ(x) = limx:a+ ƒ(x) but either the common limit is not equal ƒ(a) to ƒ(a) or is not defined

• Solve algebraically

Use an algebraic method, including paper and pencil manipulation and obvious mental work, with no calculator or grapher use. When appropriate, the final exact solution may be approximated by a calculator

• Term of a polynomial (function)

An expression of the form anxn in a polynomial (function).

• Vector

An ordered pair <a, b> of real numbers in the plane, or an ordered triple <a, b, c> of real numbers in space. A vector has both magnitude and direction.

• Vertical asymptote

The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.
