Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Acceleration due to gravity

g ? 32 ft/sec2 ? 9.8 m/sec

• Acute angle

An angle whose measure is between 0° and 90°

• Causation

A relationship between two variables in which the values of the response variable are directly affected by the values of the explanatory variable

• Central angle

An angle whose vertex is the center of a circle

• Compounded k times per year

Interest compounded using the formula A = Pa1 + rkbkt where k = 1 is compounded annually, k = 4 is compounded quarterly k = 12 is compounded monthly, etc.

• Course

See Bearing.

• Directrix of a parabola, ellipse, or hyperbola

A line used to determine the conic

• Expanded form of a series

A series written explicitly as a sum of terms (not in summation notation).

• Gaussian elimination

A method of solving a system of n linear equations in n unknowns.

• Horizontal asymptote

The line is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of a function ƒ if lim x:- q ƒ(x) = or lim x: q ƒ(x) = b

• Hyperboloid of revolution

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

• Interval notation

Notation used to specify intervals, pp. 4, 5.

• Linear regression equation

Equation of a linear regression line

• Local maximum

A value ƒ(c) is a local maximum of ƒ if there is an open interval I containing c such that ƒ(x) < ƒ(c) for all values of x in I

• Power rule of logarithms

logb Rc = c logb R, R 7 0.

• Reciprocal identity

An identity that equates a trigonometric function with the reciprocal of another trigonometricfunction.

• Scatter plot

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

• Solve algebraically

Use an algebraic method, including paper and pencil manipulation and obvious mental work, with no calculator or grapher use. When appropriate, the final exact solution may be approximated by a calculator

• Time plot

A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.

• x-axis

Usually the horizontal coordinate line in a Cartesian coordinate system with positive direction to the right,.
