Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annual percentage yield (APY)

    The rate that would give the same return if interest were computed just once a year

  • Arcsine function

    See Inverse sine function.

  • Base

    See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

  • Confounding variable

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

  • Constant of variation

    See Power function.

  • Direction vector for a line

    A vector in the direction of a line in three-dimensional space

  • Elementary row operations

    The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

  • 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.

  • Parallel lines

    Two lines that are both vertical or have equal slopes.

  • Permutations of n objects taken r at a time

    There are nPr = n!1n - r2! such permutations

  • Power regression

    A procedure for fitting a curve y = a . x b to a set of data.

  • Rational function

    Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

  • Sample survey

    A process for gathering data from a subset of a population, usually through direct questioning.

  • Semiminor axis

    The distance from the center of an ellipse to a point on the ellipse along a line perpendicular to the major axis.

  • Slope-intercept form (of a line)

    y = mx + b

  • Solution set of an inequality

    The set of all solutions of an inequality

  • Standard form of a complex number

    a + bi, where a and b are real numbers

  • Standard form of a polynomial function

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

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • Weighted mean

    A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.
