Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Average velocity

The change in position divided by the change in time.

• Cofunction identity

An identity that relates the sine, secant, or tangent to the cosine, cosecant, or cotangent, respectively

• Complex fraction

See Compound fraction.

• Convergence of a sequence

A sequence {an} converges to a if limn: q an = a

• Deductive reasoning

The process of utilizing general information to prove a specific hypothesis

• Discriminant

For the equation ax 2 + bx + c, the expression b2 - 4ac; for the equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, the expression B2 - 4AC

• Higher-degree polynomial function

A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

• Multiplication property of equality

If u = v and w = z, then uw = vz

• Nonsingular matrix

A square matrix with nonzero determinant

• Order of an m x n matrix

The order of an m x n matrix is m x n.

• 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

An equation that can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 01a ? 02

A plot of all the ordered pairs of a two-variable data set on a coordinate plane.

• Scientific notation

A positive number written as c x 10m, where 1 ? c < 10 and m is an integer.

• 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
