The practice of learning physics is in constant development, and throughout history physisists have discussed how to best represent physical phenomena to be able to create models to predict processes in physics. The study explores the variation in how physics lecturers craft their teaching practice in relation to how they know their students. The book also explores the visual representations as parts of illustrations of electrostatic phenomena with help from students.
