Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook

If u < v , then u + w < v + w

• Amplitude

See Sinusoid.

• Bounded above

A function is bounded above if there is a number B such that ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Coefficient

The real number multiplied by the variable(s) in a polynomial term

• Completing the square

A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square

• Compound interest

Interest that becomes part of the investment

• Equation

A statement of equality between two expressions.

• Graph of an equation in x and y

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs x, y that are solutions of the equation.

• Inverse cotangent function

The function y = cot-1 x

• Partial fractions

The process of expanding a fraction into a sum of fractions. The sum is called the partial fraction decomposition of the original fraction.

• Probability distribution

The collection of probabilities of outcomes in a sample space assigned by a probability function.

• Probability function

A function P that assigns a real number to each outcome O in a sample space satisfying: 0 … P1O2 … 1, P12 = 0, and the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes is 1.

• Pseudo-random numbers

Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

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

• Random variable

A function that assigns real-number values to the outcomes in a sample space.

• Reflection across the x-axis

x, y and (x,-y) are reflections of each other across the x-axis.

• Resolving a vector

Finding the horizontal and vertical components of a vector.

• Solve a system

To find all solutions of a system.

• Statistic

A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

• y-intercept

A point that lies on both the graph and the y-axis.
