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.

  • Leading coefficient

    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

  • Symmetric about the origin

    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.
