Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Arcsecant function

See Inverse secant function.

• Binomial probability

In an experiment with two possible outcomes, the probability of one outcome occurring k times in n independent trials is P1E2 = n!k!1n - k2!pk11 - p) n-k where p is the probability of the outcome occurring once

• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Blocking

A feature of some experimental designs that controls for potential differences between subject groups by applying treatments randomly within homogeneous blocks of subjects

• Coordinate plane

See Cartesian coordinate system.

• Dihedral angle

An angle formed by two intersecting planes,

• Equivalent equations (inequalities)

Equations (inequalities) that have the same solutions.

• Fitting a line or curve to data

Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

• Linear system

A system of linear equations

• Matrix element

Any of the real numbers in a matrix

• Natural numbers

The numbers 1, 2, 3, . . . ,.

• Permutation

An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.

• Random behavior

Behavior that is determined only by the laws of probability.

• Reciprocal of a real number

See Multiplicative inverse of a real number.

• Secant

The function y = sec x.

• Statute mile

5280 feet.

• Stretch of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

• Transitive property

If a = b and b = c , then a = c. Similar properties hold for the inequality symbols <, >, ?, ?.

• Vertex of a parabola

The point of intersection of a parabola and its line of symmetry.
