Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Angle

Union of two rays with a common endpoint (the vertex). The beginning ray (the initial side) can be rotated about its endpoint to obtain the final position (the terminal side)

• Argument of a complex number

The argument of a + bi is the direction angle of the vector {a,b}.

• Augmented matrix

A matrix that represents a system of equations.

• Closed interval

An interval that includes its endpoints

• Compounded monthly

See Compounded k times per year.

• Discriminant

For the equation ax 2 + bx + c, the expression b2 - 4ac; for the equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, the expression B2 - 4AC

• Explicitly defined sequence

A sequence in which the kth term is given as a function of k.

• Linear factorization theorem

A polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 has the factorization ƒ(x) = a(x1 - z1) 1x - i z 22 Á 1x - z n where the z1 are the zeros of ƒ

• Linear system

A system of linear equations

• Minute

Angle measure equal to 1/60 of a degree.

• n factorial

For any positive integer n, n factorial is n! = n.(n - 1) . (n - 2) .... .3.2.1; zero factorial is 0! = 1

• Nonsingular matrix

A square matrix with nonzero determinant

• Opens upward or downward

A parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c opens upward if a > 0 and opens downward if a < 0.

The distance from a point on a circle (or a sphere) to the center of the circle (or the sphere).

• Right-hand limit of ƒ at x a

The limit of ƒ as x approaches a from the right.

• Solve by substitution

Method for solving systems of linear equations.

A graph in which (-x, -y) is on the the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, ?) or (r, ? + ?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

• Symmetric difference quotient of ƒ at a

ƒ(x + h) - ƒ(x - h) 2h

• Unit vector

Vector of length 1.

• Wrapping function

The function that associates points on the unit circle with points on the real number line
