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 ? ,

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>.
