Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute value of a real number

Denoted by |a|, represents the number a or the positive number -a if a < 0.

• Angle of depression

The acute angle formed by the line of sight (downward) and the horizontal

• Closed interval

An interval that includes its endpoints

• Combinatorics

A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

• Constant of variation

See Power function.

• Exponential decay function

Decay modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? bx, a > 0 with 0 < b < 1.

• Inverse tangent function

The function y = tan-1 x

• Irrational zeros

Zeros of a function that are irrational numbers.

See Polynomial function in x

• Least-squares line

See Linear regression line.

• Length of a vector

See Magnitude of a vector.

• Linear function

A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = mx + b, where and b are real numbers

• Pie chart

See Circle graph.

• Rational expression

An expression that can be written as a ratio of two polynomials.

• Real number

Any number that can be written as a decimal.

• Sequence

See Finite sequence, Infinite sequence.

• 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

A graph in which (-x, -y) is on the the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, ?) or (r, ? + ?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

• Union of two sets A and B

The set of all elements that belong to A or B or both.

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.
