  • Constant of variation

    See Power function.

  • Cosecant

    The function y = csc x

  • Cubic

    A degree 3 polynomial function

  • Data

    Facts collected for statistical purposes (singular form is datum)

  • Graph of a polar equation

    The set of all points in the polar coordinate system corresponding to the ordered pairs (r,?) that are solutions of the polar equation.

  • Histogram

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

  • Inverse composition rule

    The composition of a one-toone function with its inverse results in the identity function.

  • Irreducible quadratic over the reals

    A quadratic polynomial with real coefficients that cannot be factored using real coefficients.

  • Logistic regression

    A procedure for fitting a logistic curve to a set of data

  • Magnitude of an arrow

    The magnitude of PQ is the distance between P and Q

  • Matrix, m x n

    A rectangular array of m rows and n columns of real numbers

  • Polar distance formula

    The distance between the points with polar coordinates (r1, ?1 ) and (r2, ?2 ) = 2r 12 + r 22 - 2r1r2 cos 1?1 - ?22

  • Standard form of a polar equation of a conic

    r = ke 1 e cos ? or r = ke 1 e sin ? ,

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • Vertical line test

    A test for determining whether a graph is a function.

  • Zero vector
