Term
 dependent variable
Definition
 The Variable whose value is determined by the value of another variable. In an ordered pair, the variable occurring second
Term
 independent variable
Definition
 In a function, the independent variable is the input variable. The variable occurring first in an ordered pair
Term
 input
Definition
 A replacement value for a variable in a function or relation. The first number in an ordered pair. The set of all possible input values is the domain of a function.
Term
 output
Definition
 Used to describe the result of applying a function or relationship rule to an input value. When the function is represented by a function machine the output is the number that comes out of the machine.
Term
 function
Definition
 A relationship in which for each input there is exactly one output. Y=x^2 is a function because each input for x determines one output. x^2 + y^2 = 25 is not a function, because when x=4,y= 3 or -3
Term
 linear equation
Definition
 An equation with at least one variable of degree one and no variables of degree greater than one. ax+by=c is the standard form of a linear equation.
Term
 y-intercept
Definition
 A point where the a graph intersects the y-axis
Term
 x-intercept
Definition
 A point where a graph intersects the x-axis.
Term
 domain
Definition
 The set of possible values for the independent variable or the set of possible input values
Term
 range
Definition
 The set of possible outputs (y-intercepts) for a function.
Term
 common difference
Definition
 The difference between consecutive terms of an arithmetic sequence
Term
 common ratio
Definition
 Another name for the multiplier
Term
 term
Definition
 a single number,variable or product of numbers and variables. A monomial is a term
Term
 term number
Definition
 In a sequence, a number that gives the position of a term in the sequence.
Term
 linear function
Definition
 A polynomial function of degree one or zero, with general equation f(x)=a(x-h)+k.
Term
 asymptote
Definition
 A line that the graph of a curve approaches so that the distance between the graph and the line gets as small as you wish.
Term
 parameter
Definition
 In a general equation, where x and y represent the in/out put of the function, other variables are reffered to ass parameters
