Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive identity for the complex numbers

0 + 0i is the complex number zero

• Arccotangent function

See Inverse cotangent function.

• Back-to-back stemplot

A stemplot with leaves on either side used to compare two distributions.

• Cardioid

A limaçon whose polar equation is r = a ± a sin ?, or r = a ± a cos ?, where a > 0.

• Composition of functions

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

• Confounding variable

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

• equation of a parabola

(x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) or (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h)

• Finite sequence

A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

• First-degree equation in x , y, and z

An equation that can be written in the form.

• Frequency distribution

See Frequency table.

• Geometric sequence

A sequence {an}in which an = an-1.r for every positive integer n ? 2. The nonzero number r is called the common ratio.

• Graphical model

A visible representation of a numerical or algebraic model.

• Law of cosines

a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc cos A, b2 = a2 + c2 - 2ac cos B, c2 = a2 + b2 - 2ab cos C

• LRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the left-hand endpoint of each subinterval

• Shrink of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal shrink) by the constant 1/c or all of the y-coordinates (vertical shrink) by the constant c, 0 < c < 1.

• Solve graphically

Use a graphical method, including use of a hand sketch or use of a grapher. When appropriate, the approximate solution should be confirmed algebraically

• Tree diagram

A visualization of the Multiplication Principle of Probability.

• Upper bound test for real zeros

A test for finding an upper bound for the real zeros of a polynomial.

• Variance

The square of the standard deviation.

• Zoom out

A procedure of a graphing utility used to view more of the coordinate plane (used, for example, to find theend behavior of a function).
