Those terms were all explained back in the Raw Materials section since 
they are fundamental building blocks of programming.

Have you read through the basics section of the tutor or are you 
simply picking topics of intrest? You can do that with the advanced 
topics like OOP etc but only if you have already understood 
the basics section. Otherwise there will be a lot of jargon that 
is not explained. I dedicate a lot of the introductory topics to 
explaining and defining the fundamental building blocks. If you 
have not done so I really reconmmend you read the two topics:

1) What is Programming
2) The Raw Materials

These are both fairly essential reading.
