Flashcards for Units 3 & 4 for the new AP Precalculus

42 Terms

1

Periodic function

A function that consistently reproduces a pattern of y-values

New cards
2

Period

The interval period between a periodic function's repeats

New cards
3

Intervals of increase

It is the collection of x-values extending from the greatest point to the lower bound. This is represented as [a,b], where b is the maximum point's x-value in the case of the first period.

New cards
4

Intervals of decrease

New cards
5

Concavity

New cards
6

Average rate of change

New cards
7

Standard position

If an angle's initial side is parallel to the positive x-axis and its vertex is at the origin, it is said to be in standard position.

New cards
8

Initial side

The ray on the

x-axis

New cards
9

Terminal side

An angle's other ray in standard position

New cards
10

The measurement of an angle θ that, when represented as a central angle, subtends an arc with a length equal to the circle's radius

New cards
11

Coterminal angles

Angles with a common terminal side in standard position

New cards
12

Reference angle

An acute angle made up of the x-axis and the angle's terminal side

New cards
13

Phase shift

When an angle is added, the sine or cosine function shifts horizontally.

New cards
14

Frequency

The reciprocal of a function's period is the number of times the function repeats its values within a specified interval.

New cards
15

Amplitude

The half of a periodic function's range between its maximum and minimum values

New cards
16

Midline

A periodic function's horizontal line passing through the average of its maximum and minimum values

New cards
17

Sinusoidal function

Whatever function of the form y=asin[b(x−c)] + y=asin[b(x−c)]+d that follows a sine wave pattern

New cards
18

Parametric function

A parameter, t, is an independent variable that determines the relationship between two dependent variables, x and y, which are represented by a function. A pair of parametric equations is commonly used to represent parametric functions.

New cards
19

Parameter

In a parametric function, the values of the dependent variables, y and x, are influenced by the independent variable, t.

New cards
20

Parametric equations

A pair of formulas characterizing a parametric function, wherein each formula represents one of the dependent variables, x or y, in relation to the independent variable, t.

New cards
21

The area where parametric functions are graphed is commonly represented by the set of all ordered pairs of two real numbers.

New cards
22

Table of values

The dependent variables, y i and x i, are evaluated at various values of the independent variable, t i, within the domain of a parametric function, yielding a numerical table.

New cards
23

Graph of a parametric function

A graphic depiction of a parametric function, in which the points are connected in ascending order of increasing value of t, and the coordinates (t, t)(x, y, i) are plotted in the plane for a range of values of t.

New cards
24

Particle motion

Parametric functions in a two-dimensional plane can be used to simulate a particle's motion in space.

New cards
25

Horizontal extrema

The maximum and minimum values of the function x(t) correspond to the furthest points a particle can travel in a horizontal direction.

New cards
26

Vertical extrema

The maximum and minimum values of the function y(t) correspond to the furthest points a particle can travel in a vertical direction.

New cards
27

Direction of motion

The direction in which a particle travels in the plane; the x and y components can be examined separately.

New cards
28

Rate of change

A measurement of the speed at which one variable changes in relation to another.

New cards
29

Average rate of change

the proportion of a function's output change to its input change over a specified period of time.

New cards
30

(cost,sint)

An angle formed by the positive x-axis and a line segment from the origin to the point is represented by the parameter t in this parametric representation of a point on the unit circle.

New cards
31

Transformations

A figure's size, position, or direction within a mathematical space can all be changed with these operations. It is possible to alter the path that parametric equations represent by utilizing transformations.

New cards
32

Scaling

This kind of transformation modifies a figure's size without changing its shape. A circle's radius changes when it is scaled.

New cards
33

Translating

This kind of transformation shifts a figure's points all in the same direction and by the same amount. A circle's center is moved to a new location on the coordinate plane when it is translated.

New cards
34

Reflecting

This kind of transformation causes a figure to be flipped over a plane (in 3D) or a line (in 2D). Motion is changed from counterclockwise to clockwise, or vice versa, by reflecting a circular path.

New cards
35

Implicitly defined function

A function in which an equation involving the two variables is used to express the dependent variable rather than using the independent variable alone.

New cards
36

Explicit function

A function where the independent variable and the dependent variable are clearly expressed.

New cards
37

Positive ratio

Both variables either simultaneously increase or decrease when the ratio of the changes in the two variables is positive.

New cards
38

Negative Ratio

When the two variables' change ratio is negative, one variable rises while the other falls.

New cards
39

Matrix

A numerical or variable array arranged rectangle-wise

New cards
40

Square matrix

A matrix with order m x m

New cards
41

Row matrix

A matrix arranged in a 1 by m. Example: 1×3 matrix

New cards
42

Column matrix

A matrix arranged in a m by 1. Example: 3×1 matrix
