Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annuity

    A sequence of equal periodic payments.

  • Boxplot (or box-and-whisker plot)

    A graph that displays a five-number summary

  • Coefficient

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

  • Composition of functions

    (f ? g) (x) = f (g(x))

  • Ellipsoid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

  • Empty set

    A set with no elements

  • Linear programming problem

    A method of solving certain problems involving maximizing or minimizing a function of two variables (called an objective function) subject to restrictions (called constraints)

  • Octants

    The eight regions of space determined by the coordinate planes.

  • Ordered pair

    A pair of real numbers (x, y), p. 12.

  • Parallel lines

    Two lines that are both vertical or have equal slopes.

  • Polar coordinate system

    A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

  • Polar distance formula

    The distance between the points with polar coordinates (r1, ?1 ) and (r2, ?2 ) = 2r 12 + r 22 - 2r1r2 cos 1?1 - ?22

  • Probability simulation

    A numerical simulation of a probability experiment in which assigned numbers appear with the same probabilities as the outcomes of the experiment.

  • Reference triangle

    For an angle ? in standard position, a reference triangle is a triangle formed by the terminal side of angle ?, the x-axis, and a perpendicular dropped from a point on the terminal side to the x-axis. The angle in a reference triangle at the origin is the reference angle

  • Resistant measure

    A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

  • Richter scale

    A logarithmic scale used in measuring the intensity of an earthquake.

  • Riemann sum

    A sum where the interval is divided into n subintervals of equal length and is in the ith subinterval.

  • Second-degree equation in two variables

    Ax 2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, where A, B, and C are not all zero.

  • Sum of a finite geometric series

    Sn = a111 - r n 2 1 - r

  • Ymin

    The y-value of the bottom of the viewing window.
