For many students the understanding of science and technology concepts are complicated by the lack of a clear understanding of scientific terms. Explaining scientific English can be a problem for teachers because it tends to be precise, economical and is often confused by everyday usage of science terms.
This dictionary overcomes that problem. It defines all science and technology terms that students in Australian schools are likely to meet, in simple language without losing accuracy. Definitions are supported and reinforced by diagrams and illustrations. A useful reference section is included in the back of the book.
