Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Augmented matrix

A matrix that represents a system of equations.

• Base

See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

• Central angle

An angle whose vertex is the center of a circle

• Conjugate axis of a hyperbola

The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

• Definite integral

The definite integral of the function ƒ over [a,b] is Lbaƒ(x) dx = limn: q ani=1 ƒ(xi) ¢x provided the limit of the Riemann sums exists

• Dependent event

An event whose probability depends on another event already occurring

• Domain of validity of an identity

The set of values of the variable for which both sides of the identity are defined

• Frequency distribution

See Frequency table.

• Magnitude of a real number

See Absolute value of a real number

The number of degrees or radians in an angle

• Pascal’s triangle

A number pattern in which row n (beginning with n = 02) consists of the coefficients of the expanded form of (a+b)n.

• Pole

See Polar coordinate system.

• Positive association

A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with higher values of the other variable, p. 717.

• Reflection across the y-axis

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

• Remainder polynomial

See Division algorithm for polynomials.

• Residual

The difference y1 - (ax 1 + b), where (x1, y1)is a point in a scatter plot and y = ax + b is a line that fits the set of data.

• Sequence of partial sums

The sequence {Sn} , where Sn is the nth partial sum of the series, that is, the sum of the first n terms of the series.
