written by the TERC
This web page provides illustrations of American Sign Language (ASL) as used for physics and chemistry. The user selects science terms and the page will display an online video the word signed by itself and used in a sentence. The sentence is generally a definition of the term and is given in written, ASL, and audio formats. Pictures or illustrations of some terms are also provided. Terms in the dictionary cover classes from grade 7 through a college modern physics course.
