About the Book
This book focuses on the subject of electricity and is the first in a series of introductory physics topics. It is a collection of student-made artistic representations of physics concepts and accompanying student explanations of how the concept is explained more clearly through their art. Students were life-science majors enrolled in the introductory physics sequence at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Professor Stephanie Bailey earned her Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her research focused on parity-violation in elastic electron scattering. Following graduate school, she joined the Stanford Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) as a postdoctoral fellow within the Department of Radiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. In the Fall of 2019, Professor Bailey joined Chapman University in the Schmid College of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor of Physics. Her teaching focuses primarily on introductory physics for life science majors. She enjoys developing and using engaging pedagogical techniques that will help students learn physics more effectively.
