Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Angle between vectors

    The angle formed by two nonzero vectors sharing a common initial point

  • Center

    The central point in a circle, ellipse, hyperbola, or sphere

  • Confounding variable

    A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable

  • Convergence of a series

    A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

  • Difference of functions

    (ƒ - g)(x) = ƒ(x) - g(x)

  • 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

  • Division algorithm for polynomials

    Given ƒ(x), d(x) ? 0 there are unique polynomials q1x (quotient) and r1x(remainder) ƒ1x2 = d1x2q1x2 + r1x2 with with either r1x2 = 0 or degree of r(x) 6 degree of d1x2

  • Double-blind experiment

    A blind experiment in which the researcher gathering data from the subjects is not told which subjects have received which treatment

  • Focal length of a parabola

    The directed distance from the vertex to the focus.

  • Histogram

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

  • Major axis

    The line segment through the foci of an ellipse with endpoints on the ellipse

  • Octants

    The eight regions of space determined by the coordinate planes.

  • Response variable

    A variable that is affected by an explanatory variable.

  • Slope-intercept form (of a line)

    y = mx + b

  • Standard form of a polar equation of a conic

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

  • Symmetric about the y-axis

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

  • Third quartile

    See Quartile.

  • Upper bound for real zeros

    A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.

  • Variable

    A letter that represents an unspecified number.

  • Vector equation for a line in space

    The line through P0(x 0, y0, z0) in the direction of the nonzero vector V = <a, b, c> has vector equation r = r0 + tv , where r = <x,y,z>.
