The two terms are used interchangeably in conversation, but they mean different things. You pass arguments when calling a method. And you use parameters within the method body.
As most if not all programming languages are copy-by-value, the two are equivalent, only differing in the context. The two terms exist to distinguish whether you are talking about a method definition or a method call. When you're calling a method, you pass in arguments. When you're actually in the method body, you are using parameters. Arguments get copied-by-value to parameters.
