Average rate of change of ƒ over [a, b]
The number ƒ(b)  ƒ(a) b  a, provided a ? b.

Base
See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

Basic logistic function
The function ƒ(x) = 1 / 1 + ex

Bias
A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses

Conjugate axis of a hyperbola
The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

Constant of variation
See Power function.

Cosecant
The function y = csc x

Demand curve
p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

Descriptive statistics
The gathering and processing of numerical information

Identity
An equation that is always true throughout its domain.

Interquartile range
The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

Irrational zeros
Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

Multiplicative inverse of a complex number
The reciprocal of a + bi, or 1 a + bi = a a2 + b2 ba2 + b2 i

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

Normal distribution
A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

Reexpression of data
A transformation of a data set.

Right angle
A 90° angle.

Sum of a finite geometric series
Sn = a111  r n 2 1  r

Velocity
A vector that specifies the motion of an object in terms of its speed and direction.

Zero factor property
If ab = 0 , then either a = 0 or b = 0.
