Arccosine function
See Inverse cosine function.

Coordinate plane
See Cartesian coordinate system.

DMS measure
The measure of an angle in degrees, minutes, and seconds

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

Finite sequence
A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

Initial point
See Arrow.

Inverse cosine function
The function y = cos1 x

Inverse cotangent function

Negative numbers
Real numbers shown to the left of the origin on a number line.

Power function
A function of the form ƒ(x) = k . x a, where k and a are nonzero constants. k is the constant of variation and a is the power.

Quotient of complex numbers
a + bi c + di = ac + bd c2 + d2 + bc  ad c2 + d2 i

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

Solution of an equation or inequality
