Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bias

    A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses

  • Completing the square

    A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square

  • Components of a vector

    See Component form of a vector.

  • Compound interest

    Interest that becomes part of the investment

  • Confounding variable

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

  • Degree of a polynomial (function)

    The largest exponent on the variable in any of the terms of the polynomial (function)

  • Half-life

    The amount of time required for half of a radioactive substance to decay.

  • Histogram

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

  • Instantaneous rate of change

    See Derivative at x = a.

  • Inverse cotangent function

    The function y = cot-1 x

  • Multiplicative identity for matrices

    See Identity matrix

  • Multiplicity

    The multiplicity of a zero c of a polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 is the number of times the factor (x - c) (x - z 2) Á (x - z n)

  • Observational study

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.

  • Permutation

    An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.

  • Polar coordinates

    The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

  • Quotient rule of logarithms

    logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0

  • Randomization

    The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.

  • Solution of an equation or inequality

    A value of the variable (or values of the variables) for which the equation or inequality is true

  • Statute mile

    5280 feet.

  • Sum of a finite geometric series

    Sn = a111 - r n 2 1 - r
