Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Categorical variable

In statistics, a nonnumerical variable such as gender or hair color. Numerical variables like zip codes, in which the numbers have no quantitative significance, are also considered to be categorical.

• Constant function (on an interval)

ƒ(x 1) = ƒ(x 2) x for any x1 and x2 (in the interval)

• Double-blind experiment

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

• Explicitly defined sequence

A sequence in which the kth term is given as a function of k.

• First octant

The points (x, y, z) in space with x > 0 y > 0, and z > 0.

• Function

A relation that associates each value in the domain with exactly one value in the range.

• Horizontal line

y = b.

• Instantaneous velocity

The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

• Outcomes

The various possible results of an experiment.

• Perihelion

The closest point to the Sun in a planet’s orbit.

• Power function

A function of the form ƒ(x) = k . x a, where k and a are nonzero constants. k is the constant of variation and a is the power.

An angle in standard position whose terminal side lies on an axis.

• Recursively defined sequence

A sequence defined by giving the first term (or the first few terms) along with a procedure for finding the subsequent terms.

• Right triangle

A triangle with a 90° angle.

• Sample standard deviation

The standard deviation computed using only a sample of the entire population.

• Solve a triangle

To find one or more unknown sides or angles of a triangle

• Solve by elimination or substitution

Methods for solving systems of linear equations.

• Standard unit vectors

In the plane i = <1, 0> and j = <0,1>; in space i = <1,0,0>, j = <0,1,0> k = <0,0,1>

• Summation notation

The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series
