A glossary of scientific terms and short biographies that support our science education website, http://www.visionlearning.com. All definitions link to related terms and to free, detailed science learning modules. Though geared for high school and undergraduate students using our website, the glossary and modules are appropriate for anyone generally interested in science.
So I was doing my science homework which was look up some vocabulary words and so since I was on my iPad. I downloaded this. App so I turn to look up my first word which quantitative observation.... IT DIDNT HAVE IT so that night I got a bad grade on my homework. I'm not blaming the app, but can someone please fix that . Thank you in advance.
Needs update by Gregory1082067
I'm very disappointed of how some words are missing, don't have the iOS 8 design, this app needs update or it's deleted
No help by The loser brayan
I tried finding 30 word and it only found 1 and it was not helpful this app is useless
HORRIBLE by 14Wiley14
Has NONE of the words you need. I was looking up words strait out of a biology book too!!!
No mitosis! by Mitchell Mullen
I entered mitosis to see if it was really that bad. It is.
Crappy! by Hazel_Ammon
None of the words i need are included! If you added a much larger variety of words and made it so you could mark words or hilight them or bookmark them or something it would be great!
what is this???!??! 😡😡 by Leafwolf
this is for BABIES! i need a dictionary that has a lot of words and that doesn't cost $30!!! goodness. UPDATE YOUR APP PLEASE AND THANKYOU.
WORST APP EVER by Dannyisaboss789
I dont know what i was thinking when i downloaded this... It didnt have any words on my whole assignment. Cant believe i even got this, such a waste of time. Dont get this app! WORST APP EVER
AWFUL by Anne Miles DeMott
This app has NONE of the words I need and no one should waste their time. Doesn't even have the word concentration or capillary action. Terrible app.
No specific words by Person9999898988889
This dictionary only covers the main topics. I was looking up genetic related words for homework and it had none of them. IT'S BAD DONT WASTE YOUR TIME DOWNLOADING IT!
Great...except by NjD95
Would be a wonderful app and very helpful, but is simply lacking loads of even common science words. Needs more words! As of right now, not worth your time.
Rating by Scienceguy55
This is a good app and advanced but the one thing it needs is a search bar, if there isn't one.
Ridiculous by JessAid91
Not worth even downloading to check out. Basic science words aren't even included.
Not High Quality👎 by Jo Thinker
I was trying to find some vocabulary words for my science project to help me get some info, so I downloaded this app to help me. Well, I looked up just one of my vocabulary words, subsurface topography, and they didn't have it. So, I just typed in another vocab word, geological forces, and it didn't have that word either. Also, I notice some words in the app were misspelled too. Ps: I'm only in 6th grade so the vocab words might be kinda babyish to some of u ppl reading this review.
Terrible by Uuuuuuggggggghhhhhhhhh
For 5th graders
Are you kidding me?! by Skylanders DS gamer
I'm trying to look up my fifth grade science words and I can't find any in a freakin dictionary and I try here and I get no results MAKE THIS HAVE MORE WORDS FOR FIFTH GRADE
Not bad, but weak by This Guy, and That Guy
This app does have a fair number of science definitions but nothing beyond an 8th grade level. I tried to look up flash point the other day only to get nothing.
All in all, not bad. But don't expect it to help you in high school or college.
Horrible by Brandonstc
The app did not have any of my chemistry definitions in if.
Good program by Halocase
My students use this one to help make flash cards
SCIENCE GLOSSARY by cadre9
A very informative free app, lots of info, great for just browsing out of curiosity....some missing, yet important items, i.e. ..Tesla and Planck, makes it less than perfect....but what is?
Good app for general knowledge by DrVRob
This is a good app for general knowledge, or for finding definitions and information on basic scientific facts. But there are many areas that it is lacking. Another reviewer noted and I concur that it is reprehensible that Nicola Tesla is not highlighted in here. There is a section on Florence Nightingale, and not Tesla? I mean, come on!
Useful! by seisabase
A really great reference for basic scientific terminology. I have learned several things I would have otherwise overlooked. Thanks!
Great but... by Nesterling
If they are going to include convection they should also include conduction. Otherwise a good all around app.
Missing a lot by SkullDrillerMK
Just get wikipanion
Leave a lot to be desired.... by Utgradd92
I was excited o find this when i was given an assignment to look up definitions of 57 science terms, but it fell short of my expectations. There are a lot of major terms not included in this app, like States of Matter, plasma, open/closed systems, acceleration...and the list goes on and on.
Handy! by DebOChicago
Nice quick way to look up scientific terms.
Awfullllllll by Bug03
Only has like a 50 word glossary and most of them are people DO NOT GET THIS APP
Still mad by Ean Aidans
Does not contain entry over Nikola Tesla. Not even the unit for magnetic flux (Tesla) You cannot have science without him.
Request by Ciencia1
I tried to find details about Max Planck,Nobel Prize in Physics 1918,but I couldn't find his name. Do you think could be possible to update the info. Thanks! I love this app, it's very helpful.
Fun and useful by Antlingo
Simple definitions and at they are right at your fingertips. Highly recommend.
Seems good! by Couatl
The negative reviews below are probably about old versions. This (possibly updated) version is pretty good. It's easy to use. It's good for looking something in particular up or just flipping through random terms and facts while sitting in a waiting room or in line. It might be nice if there were a back button so you could easily return to one you just looked at, and a quiz feature would be awesome!
Very good. by Anant Kishore
I recommend it.
I have yet to use app by juan echeverri
This looked like a great app however even though they tried to fix the problem the app doesn't want to download or install on my iPad
Science by Valerie Jenness
Didn't help me with my homework lol.
Mrs.Labithia by Horsefriend100
I'm a science teacher in Ca, USA highly reccomened
Works again by SmallDane
Thanks for the update, it works again! It's the best free science dictionary around.
What the.... by Not...um
Hardly any words and the words they have, horrible way of describing
Rain with ph and moluces.
Needs more words!!! by Marko Pulido
Put more vocabulary On it
Not even worth getting by Jesse Stell
So few terms. It's useless.
Bad!! by Socrates520
Horrible App very limited in teems don't waste your time, unless you are in middle school it's useless.
Poor by MacFanBoy2
Good only for kids in Europe and American students - both groups share similar, limited, knowledge level.
Awesome by iUser5000
This app is awesome. I know a lot of people say it doesn't have enough terms, but they don't consider the fact that it is free. To show my point look up the app: Encycopledia and you see that it costs $9.00. Overall this is a good app because it is for one thing free, and has enough Scientific terms to satisfy.
Hmmm by dufdufgo
Helpful but doesn't have a lot of terms in my book
Good for a 10 year old by dcdc2010
I really like the concept but the collection of terms is VERY limited. You'd be better off launching Safari and pull up a Wikipedia page.
Limited chem by Anonpersonality
The icon for this app shows a beaker with liquid inside bubbling suggesting that this app has some chemical focus. This is not the case. Chemical elements appear to have been ignored in this science ref.
What up (v1.14) by Dbaby115
How do you bag out in go to something eles
Any important words? by Dyankees
I tried to use this app for my ap bio class and I had to look up 100 words for a study guide and it had 1 word. It was like chapters 1-3 of simple biology and it had 1 word. It's useless. When you scroll from the top to the bottom of the list in two seconds you know it's too short of a dictionary. Needs more words. Alot more words.
Terrible by swimgirl900
It didnt help me at all and yeah it didnt even have the word cell in it. im deleting it.
