# Subject specific vocabulary

The following subject specific vocabulary provides definitions of key terms used in our AS and A-level Maths and Further Maths specifications.

Where a question asks for a practical interpretation, it specifically indicates that the answer should be phrased in context ie referring to the scenario given in the question rather than in general terms.

## Hence

Use results found or given earlier in the question.

## Hence, or otherwise

Any correct method is acceptable, but results found or given earlier in the question could be useful.

The answer should be simplified as far as possible but should not be rounded. Answers should be written in terms of π, *e*, g, etc and irrational terms such as √2.
