A state function means that only the initial state and final state are needed to determine the value. I think Lavelle's example of how only the initial and final destinations matter when you hike a mountain and how the pathway you took is irrelevant explains conceptually what a state function is.

Could you also give examples of what would not be a state function?
Work is an example of a non-state (path) function
