French term or phrase: note de synthese...also...synthetique
La note de synthèse propose un résumé clair et synthétique des fonctions étudiées au cours de l'activité.
I find synthese and synthetique quite difficult to translate into English. Does anybody have a good phrase they use in this circumstance?

summary


Explanation:
synthèse actually means exactly the opposite of analysis, if you look at the derivation of the words. Summary/summarised is usually a good bet.
