Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Blocking

    A feature of some experimental designs that controls for potential differences between subject groups by applying treatments randomly within homogeneous blocks of subjects

  • Compounded k times per year

    Interest compounded using the formula A = Pa1 + rkbkt where k = 1 is compounded annually, k = 4 is compounded quarterly k = 12 is compounded monthly, etc.

  • Continuous function

    A function that is continuous on its entire domain

  • Elimination method

    A method of solving a system of linear equations

  • equation of a quadratic function

    ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c(a ? 0)

  • Expanded form of a series

    A series written explicitly as a sum of terms (not in summation notation).

  • Infinite limit

    A special case of a limit that does not exist.

  • Inverse properties

    a + 1-a2 = 0, a # 1a

  • Leading term

    See Polynomial function in x.

  • Leibniz notation

    The notation dy/dx for the derivative of ƒ.

  • Observational study

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.

  • Ordered set

    A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

  • Outcomes

    The various possible results of an experiment.

  • PH

    The measure of acidity

  • Root of a number

    See Principal nth root.

  • Translation

    See Horizontal translation, Vertical translation.

  • Unit vector in the direction of a vector

    A unit vector that has the same direction as the given vector.

  • Venn diagram

    A visualization of the relationships among events within a sample space.

  • Weighted mean

    A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.

  • x-axis

    Usually the horizontal coordinate line in a Cartesian coordinate system with positive direction to the right,.
