Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arithmetic sequence

    A sequence {an} in which an = an-1 + d for every integer n ? 2 . The number d is the common difference.

  • Combinations of n objects taken r at a time

    There are nCr = n! r!1n - r2! such combinations,

  • Distance (in a coordinate plane)

    The distance d(P, Q) between P(x, y) and Q(x, y) d(P, Q) = 2(x 1 - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2

  • Fitting a line or curve to data

    Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

  • Graph of a function ƒ

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs (x, ƒ(x)) for x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Hyperboloid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating a hyperbola about its transverse axis, p. 607.

  • Inequality symbol or

    <,>,<,>.

  • Logarithmic function with base b

    The inverse of the exponential function y = bx, denoted by y = logb x

  • One-to-one function

    A function in which each element of the range corresponds to exactly one element in the domain

  • Ordered pair

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

  • Period

    See Periodic function.

  • 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)

  • Quantitative variable

    A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

  • Real zeros

    Zeros of a function that are real numbers.

  • Reflection across the x-axis

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

  • Secant

    The function y = sec x.

  • Standard form of a polynomial function

    ƒ(x) = an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0

  • Stem

    The initial digit or digits of a number in a stemplot.

  • Sum identity

    An identity involving a trigonometric function of u + v

  • Variance

    The square of the standard deviation.
