Polynomials  Completing the Square and Quadratics  



Imaginary and Complex Numbers  Series and Sequences  

Imaginary Number: the number that squared yields a result of 1. Complex Number: a number that can be written in the form where the term is real and the term is imaginary To find , divide n by 4 and match the remainder to one of the powers of to the right. 
Sequence: an ordered list of numbers or terms Explicit Formula: a formula that defines all the terms of a sequence Recursive Formula: a formula that uses one or more previous terms to generate the next term Series: an expression that indicates the sum of terms of a sequence Arithmetic Sequence: a sequence whose successive terms differ by the same common difference, d Arithmetic Series: the indicated sum of the terms of an arithmetic sequence Geometric Sequence: a sequence in which the ratio of successive terms is the same common ratio, r Geometric Series: the indicated sum of the terms of a geometric sequence Binomial Theorem: a formula for finding the expansion of the powers of a binomial expression 

Conic Sections  
Circle: the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a given point, the center in the plane. Ellipse: the set of all points in a plane such that the sum of the distances from two fixed points, the foci, is constant Parabolas: the set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point, the focus, and a given line, the directrix Hyperbola: the set of all points in a plane such that the absolute value of the difference of the distances from two fixed points, the foci, is constant (h,k)= center or vertex r=radius of circle

Fundamental Counting Principle: if an event can occur in m ways and another can occur in n ways, then the first event followed by the second event can occur in ways Independent Events: Events that do not affect the outcome of each other Dependent Events: Events that affect he outcomes of each other Mutually Exclusive Events: two elements that cannot occur at the same time Inclusive Events: Two events whos outcomes may be the same Combination: An arrangement of objects in which order is not important Permutation: An arrangement of objects in which order is important
