Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Augmented matrix

A matrix that represents a system of equations.

• Average rate of change of ƒ over [a, b]

The number ƒ(b) - ƒ(a) b - a, provided a ? b.

• 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

• Factoring (a polynomial)

Writing a polynomial as a product of two or more polynomial factors.

• Inverse of a matrix

The inverse of a square matrix A, if it exists, is a matrix B, such that AB = BA = I , where I is an identity matrix.

• Lemniscate

A graph of a polar equation of the form r2 = a2 sin 2u or r 2 = a2 cos 2u.

• Linear regression line

The line for which the sum of the squares of the residuals is the smallest possible

• Logarithmic function with base b

The inverse of the exponential function y = bx, denoted by y = logb x

• Midpoint (on a number line)

For the line segment with endpoints a and b, a + b2

• n-set

A set of n objects.

• Natural logarithmic function

The inverse of the exponential function y = ex, denoted by y = ln x.

• Natural numbers

The numbers 1, 2, 3, . . . ,.

• Probability of an event in a finite sample space of equally likely outcomes

The number of outcomes in the event divided by the number of outcomes in the sample space.

• Random variable

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

• Range of a function

The set of all output values corresponding to elements in the domain.

• Reflection across the x-axis

x, y and (x,-y) are reflections of each other across the x-axis.

• Second quartile

See Quartile.

• Stretch of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

• Third quartile

See Quartile.
