# CALCULUS GLOSSARY

Mr. X is glad to provide video presentations of hundreds of calculus glossary terms. The calculus glossary is part of a complete math glossary available free of charge on the website. All calculus glossary terms are provided free of charge to all users.
Title Description
Scalar Product A Product of vector multiplication, such as a dot product, that results in a value that is Scalar with size (magnitude) but no associated direction.
Second Derivative A Derivative taken of a first Derivative is termed a Second Derivative.
Second-order Differential Equation An ordinary Differential Equation in which the highest derivative is a second derivative is called a Second-Order Differential Equation.
Sequence Informally, any series is a Sequence.
More formally, any series of terms that adheres or conforms to a pattern.
Series Most often a sequence of terms to be summed.
Informally, any sequence of terms may be a Series.
Shell Method A method in calculus to calculate volumetric values from functions having been rotated about an axis.
Simpson's Rule In calculus we may use three points of a parabola to approximate the function's range of values to determine the area of each partition of the integral.
Solid of Revolution When a function is rotated around an axis (of Revolution) it generates a Solid of Revolution.
Solution Too often in math class, "the answer." More directly, a Solution is a value (or set of values) that makes a mathematical statement true.
Spherical Geometry Unlike plane Geometry, Spherical Geometry is not based on the parallel postulate.
Many of our accepted geometric theorems, principles, and tenets (from plane Geometry) simply do not hold in Spherical Geometry.
Spherical Trigonometry Unlike plane Trigonometry, elementary Spherical Trigonometry is three dimensional.
If based in spherical geometry, the math of Spherical Trig gets downright grisly.

Please send us an email with your suggestions for this glossary. We at Mr. X want this site to be as helpful as possible.
