MS, Physics, The University of Texas at Dallas
Beatrice Rasmussen’s Faculty Profile on Research Explorer
I am a Senior Lecturer at The University of Texas at Dallas. I obtained a BS in Marine Sciences from Texas A&M University of Galveston in 1981. I obtained a MS in Physics from The University of Texas at Dallas in 1996. I have done research for a PhD, but not actually received the degree at this time. I worked on three projects in the past: a study of nuclear waste disposal, a neural network study for prediction of Equatorial Spread-F, and a power spectra study of Equatorial Spread-F. Currently I am working on a fourth project dealing with remote sensing data and self organized mapping,
I have been at UTD for several years and taught both algebra and calculus based physics. I have graded AP Physics exams for five years. I have also been a faculty advocate for one of the physics homework websites. I currently am holding webinars on how to create content for that homework website. I am also working on developing new elective courses for the undergraduate physics students: Physics of the Human Body and Fluid Mechanics. I have also been working on a Peer Lead Team Learning project for physics.
