Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Associative properties

a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c, a(bc) = (ab)c.

• Bounded above

A function is bounded above if there is a number B such that ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Cone

See Right circular cone.

• Confounding variable

A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable

• Continuous function

A function that is continuous on its entire domain

• Cubic

A degree 3 polynomial function

• Equivalent systems of equations

Systems of equations that have the same solution.

• Fibonacci sequence

The sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, . . ..

• Finite sequence

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

• Frequency table (in statistics)

A table showing frequencies.

• Imaginary unit

The complex number.

• Limit at infinity

limx: qƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ1x2 gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily large; lim x:- q ƒ1x2 means that gets arbitrarily close to L as gets arbitrarily large

• Order of magnitude (of n)

log n.

• Ordered set

A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

• Outcomes

The various possible results of an experiment.

• Polynomial function

A function in which ƒ(x)is a polynomial in x, p. 158.

• Positive numbers

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

• Reflection across the x-axis

x, y and (x,-y) are reflections of each other across the x-axis.

• Resistant measure

A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

• Vertex of an angle

See Angle.
