Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bar chart

    A rectangular graphical display of categorical data.

  • Closed interval

    An interval that includes its endpoints

  • Completing the square

    A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square

  • Cube root

    nth root, where n = 3 (see Principal nth root),

  • Dot product

    The number found when the corresponding components of two vectors are multiplied and then summed

  • Fibonacci sequence

    The sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, . . ..

  • Finite series

    Sum of a finite number of terms.

  • Histogram

    A graph that visually represents the information in a frequency table using rectangular areas proportional to the frequencies.

  • Mathematical induction

    A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

  • Multiplication property of inequality

    If u < v and c > 0, then uc < vc. If u < and c < 0, then uc > vc

  • Parabola

    The graph of a quadratic function, or the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point (the focus) and a fixed line (the directrix).

  • Polar form of a complex number

    See Trigonometric form of a complex number.

  • Polynomial function

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

  • Positive association

    A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with higher values of the other variable, p. 717.

  • Probability function

    A function P that assigns a real number to each outcome O in a sample space satisfying: 0 … P1O2 … 1, P12 = 0, and the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes is 1.

  • Projectile motion

    The movement of an object that is subject only to the force of gravity

  • Quadratic equation in x

    An equation that can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 01a ? 02

  • Radian measure

    The measure of an angle in radians, or, for a central angle, the ratio of the length of the intercepted arc tothe radius of the circle.

  • Spiral of Archimedes

    The graph of the polar curve.

  • Window dimensions

    The restrictions on x and y that specify a viewing window. See Viewing window.
