You mean like

The '1' being the "function parameter?" Or do you mean something else -- the term "method argument" is more common in Java.

I assume its the "method argument" although it calls it the function parameter.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking. You pass arguments to a method to supply "inputs" for whatever computation it's going to do; are you asking something more than this?
