- Some of the terminologies fundamental to mathematics are list below :
- Axiom - An assumption to be taken as unproven fact (often because it is so obvious, same as postulate).
- Theorem - A statement deduced from a specific axiom system or other theorems.
- Lemma - It is used to prove a theorem but not that interesting or important.
- Corollary - It is a special case of a more general theorem.
- Conjecture - It is the same as hypothesis, which is an unproven suggestion based on substantial evidence.
- Theory - Statements devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena. It usually starts out as hypothesis and matures gradually with supporting evidences.
- Equation - A mathematical sentence to equate two things together.
- Formula - An expression used to calculate something.
