  15. Sequence
    An ordered list of numbers called terms. Each successive number follows the previous according to a uniform rule.
  16. Finite Sequence
    Has a last term.
  17. Infinate Sequence
    Never ending use
  18. Index
    The term number
  19. General term
    The name given to tn. The rule or formula of the sequence. 
  20. Arithmatic Sequence
    Each term is found by adding the same number (constant) to the previous term. 
  21. Common difference
    The constant that is added to each term to get the next term. 
  22. Geometric sequence
    Each term is found by multiplying the same number(constant) to the previous term. 
  23. Common ratio
    The number that is multiplied to each term to get the next term. 
  24. Explicit Formulas
    The Arithmatic and geometric formulas.
  25. Recursion Formula
    A different formula to express sequences,arithmatic, geometric, and other. Has 2 parts the first term, and the formula which refers to the previous term t(n-1).
  26. Series
    The sum of a sequence. Has + signs instead of commas between terms. 
  27. Sums
    The sum of a sequence. 
  28. Raticals
    Irrational numbers (non terminating, non repeating)
  29. 3 ways to solve quadratic equations
    Factoring, Quadratic Formula, Square root method. 
  30. Discriminant
    Tells the number of solutions or roots.
  31. Open circle
    Greater than (boundary not included)
  32. Closed circle
    Less than (boundary included)
  33. Union

  36. Relation
    The relationship between 2 variables. 
  37. Functions

    The length of one complete cycle. 
  45. Axis of the curve
    A horizontal line that lies halfway between the max and the min.
  46. Cycle of a graph
    The smallest repeating unit. 
  47. Standard position
    When the initial arm is at the positive x axis and the terminal arm rotates around the origin forming an angle.
  48. Coterminal angle
    Angles that have the same initial and terminal arms. 
  49. Principal angle
    The angle between the positive initial arm and the terminal arm. (between 0 and 360 degrees)
