William's Words in Science by Dr William Hirst

William's words in scienceThis book is cram-packed with useful information for KS3 students and is an invaluable resource for both home and school. The main part of the book is a dictionary which gives the scientific meanings of all the words a student is likely to encounter. This is supported by a wealth of other material - biographies of over 150 scientists and a section of 'really useful information', such as abbreviations, chemical formulae, the periodic table and some very useful mnemonics to remember those key scientific facts. The final section is encyclopaedic definitions and illustrations, cross-referenced to the dictionary section. This is a really well-thought out reference book and I think it would continue to be useful throughout KS4 too. It even comes with a protective cover! William has received the following reviews for William's Words:

I bought William’s Words last year -it’s brilliant - I use it all the time [two teachers at ASE 2011]
 
It’s the best book I have bought this year [trainee-teacher from Northampton]
I have it in my lab, and the children love to use it  [teacher from a Birmingham comprehensive school]
 
William’s Words has been an invaluable asset in the lab   [independent school teacher]
 
 I have already found the book useful in the preparation of work for a Year 7 class today   MB
 
I'm really impressed with the quality of its writing and production, and have already used it for reference several times. However, to do so, I had to go and steal it back from my 12-year-old son who was utterly delighted when I showed him, saying it was 'exactly what he needed’   GW
 
The dictionary has been brilliant. I've had people picking it up just to thumb through it and saying 'I never knew that!'   JL

Dear William
Thank you very much for this. It was lovely to meet you and your wife at the ASE conference, and I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to buy your book. I'm really impressed with the quality of it's writing and production, and have already used it for reference several times. However, to do so, I had to go and steal it back from my 12-year-old son who was utterly delighted when I showed him, saying it was 'exactly what he needed'! So congratulations on a great publication - and good luck with sales!
Very best wishes,     Gina W
 
Dear William,
I have already found the book useful in the preparation of work for a Year 7 class today.  I like to make sure I know what words mean before I teach a topic!
Yours,      Mary B
