isolation joint

The isolation joint is to separate, say, a floor slab from elements of the structure that have different coefficients of expansion. This enables differential movement between them.

The second part should be a separate question, but it is perhaps sufficient to point out that there is a missing "o".

expansion joint, the first poured surface

An expansion joint divides the concrete structure so that the different parts can contract and expand (temperature, shrinkage) independently of each other.
