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.A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Title  Description  

Tangent  A line that touches a function curve at a single point is said to be Tangent to the function. Tangent is also one of the six basic trigonometric functions; it is the ratio of the opposite side (from a specified angle) of a right triangle to the adjacent side. 

Tangent Line  A Line is said to be Tangent to a function when it touches the graph of the function at a single point. 

Taylor Series  Many common functions can be written as an expansion of the function about a point in a form known as a Taylor Series. 

Tetrahedron  A polyhedron with four faces. 

Three Dimensions  The Dimensions of space or volume are Three Dimensions, typically labeled with rectangular, spherical, or cylindrical coordinates. 

ThreeDimensional Coordinates  ThreeDimensional Coordinates require an ordered triple to label a point in space. 

Transcendental Number  A Transcendental Number will not be the root of a polynomial with integer coefficients; it is an irrational number. 

Transpose (Matrix)  When we interchange the rows and columns of a matrix we Transpose the Matrix. 

Trapezoidal Rule  When approximating an integral in calculus we may treat each partition as a Trapezoid to determine the area under the curve. 

Triple Product (Scalar)  Effectively, a Scalar Triple Product is akin to the determinant of a 3x3 matrix.
