Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Angle of elevation

    The acute angle formed by the line of sight (upward) and the horizontal

  • 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

  • Compound interest

    Interest that becomes part of the investment

  • Constant function (on an interval)

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

  • Correlation coefficient

    A measure of the strength of the linear relationship between two variables, pp. 146, 162.

  • Double inequality

    A statement that describes a bounded interval, such as 3 ? x < 5

  • Expanded form of a series

  • Origin

    The number zero on a number line, or the point where the x- and y-axes cross in the Cartesian coordinate system, or the point where the x-, y-, and z-axes cross in Cartesian three-dimensional space

  • Polar coordinates

    The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

  • Quadric surface

    The graph in three dimensions of a seconddegree equation in three variables.

  • Semiperimeter of a triangle

    One-half of the sum of the lengths of the sides of a triangle.

  • Sum of an infinite series

    See Convergence of a series
