Relation
A correspondence between two variables, and can be written as a set of ordered pairs (x,y). (When relations are written as ordered pairs, we say x is related to y.)
1 to 1 Function
A function f is said to be one-to-one if, for any choice of numbers x1 and x2, x1=/=x2, in the domain of f, then f(x1)=/=f(x2).
Cartesian Product
The cartesian product of two sets, A and B (written AxB), is the set of all ordered pairs whose first member is an element of A, and whose second member is an element of B.
Function
Let X and Y be two nonempty sets of real numbers(*). A function from X into Y is a rule or a correspondence that associates with each element of X a unique element of Y. (*The two sets X and Y can also be sets of complex numbers. In the broad definition, X and Y can be any two sets.)
Odd Function (definition)
A function is odd if for every number x in its domain the number -x is also in the domain and f(-x)=-f(x).
Odd Function (theorem)
A function is odd iff its graph is symmetric with respect to the origin.
Even Function (definition)
A function is even if for every number x in its domain the number -x is also in the domain and f(-x)=f(x)
Even Function (theorem)
A function is even iff its graph is symmetric with respect to the y-axis
Composition of a Function
Given two functions f and g, the composite function, denoted by fog, is defined by fog(x)=f(g(x)). The domain of fog is the set of all numbers x in the domain of g such that g(x) is in the domain of f.
A quadratic function is a function equivalent to one of the form y=a*x^2+b*x+c, where a, b, and c are real numbers and a=/=0.
Average Rate of Change
If c is in the domain of a function y=f(x), the average rate of change of f between c and x is defined as: average rate of change=delta y/delta x=(f(x)-f(c))/(x-c), x=/=c. (Also called the difference quotient of f at c)

Power Function of Degree n
A power function of degree n is a function of the form f(x)=a*x^n where a is a real number, a=/=0, and n>0 is an integer.
Increasing Interval
A function f is increasing on an open interval I if, for any choice of x1 and x2 in I, with x1
Decreasing Interval
A function f is decreasing on an open interval I if, for any choice of x1 and x2 in I, with x1f(x2).
Constant Interval
A function f is constant on an open interval I if, for any choice of x1 and x2 in I, with x1=/=x2, the values in f(x) are equal.
Factor Theorem
Let f be a polynomial function. Then x-c is a factor of f(x) iff f(c)=0
Zero of Multiplicity m of f
If (x-r)^m is a factor of polynomial f and (x-r)^(m+1) is not a factor of f, then r is called a zero of multiplicity m of f.
Zero/root of f
If f is a polynomial function and r is a real number for which f(r)=0, then r is called a (real) zero of f, or root of f. If r is a (real) zero of f, then 1) r is an x-intercept of the graph of f. 2) (x-r) is a factor of f
Parabola (definition)
The set of all points that are equidistant from a fixed line (D) and a fixed point (F) that is not on the line.
Vertical Line Test
A set of points in the xy-plane is the graph of a function iff a vertical line intersects the graph in at most one point.
Two lines are parallel iff what is true?
Two distinct non-vertical lines are parallel iff their slopes are equal.
Matrix
A rectangular array of numbers.
Two lines are perpendicular iff what is true?
Two non-vertical lines are perpendicular iff the product of their slopes is -1.
Local Maximum
A function f has a local maximum at c if there is an interval I containing c so that, for all x=/=c in I, f(x)
Local Minimum
A function f has a local minimum at c if there is an interval I containing c so that, for all x=/=c in I, f(x)>f(c). We call f(c) a local minimum of f.
Vertical Asymptotes (theorem)
A rational function R(x)=p(x)/q(x), in lowest terms, will have a vertical asymptote at x=r, if x-r is a factor of q(x).
Remainder Theorem
Let f be a polynomial function. If f(x) is divisible by x-c, then the result is f(c).
Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
Every complex polynomial function f(x) of degree n>=1 has at least 1 complex zero.
Complex Polynomial
A complex polynomial function f of degree n is a complex function of the form f(x)=an*x^n+an-1*x^(n-1)+...+a1*x+a0, where an, an-1,...,a1,a0 are complex numbers, an=/=0, n is a non-negative integer, and x is a complex variable.
Inverse of a Function
Let f denote a 1 to 1 function y=f(x). The inverse of f, denoted by f^-1, is a function such that f^-1(f(x))=x for every x in the domain of f and f(f^-1(x))=x for every x in the domain of f^-1.
Rational Zeros Theorem
Let f be a polynomial function of degree 1 or higher of the form f(x)=an*x^n+an-1*x^(n-1)+...+a1*x+a0, an=/=0, a0 =/=0 where each coefficient is an integer. If p/q in lowest terms is a rational zero of f, then p must be a factor of a0 and q must be a factor of an.
Polynomial Function
A polynomial function is a function of the form f(x)=an*x^n+an-1*x^(n-1)+...+a1*x+a0, where an, an-1,..., a1, a0 are real numbers and n is a non-negative integer. The domain consists of all real numbers.

A rational function is a function in the form R(x)=p(x)/q(x), where p and q are polynomial functions and q is not the zero polynomial. 62 items en en
