My Best Blogs of 2018

I am very pleased to say that I got my best annual viewing figure ever: just over 9000 views in total beating a previous best of 7000.

Small beer for some in the edu-blogosphere perhaps, but I am well chuffed.

And my most popular blogs were (in reverse order):

  • 5) IoP Energy for Busy Teachers. This is yet another of my periodic tilts at the Institute of Physics’ revised schema for teaching energy, including some attempted humour.
  • 4) The FBI and Gang Sign for Physicists. I am am at a loss to explain why this random stream-of-edu-conciousness post from 2016 seems to get a slow but steady stream of readers, mainly from the U.S.A. for some reason
  • 3) Teaching Electric Circuits? Climb On Board The Coulomb Train! This, I have to admit, is one of my personal favourites. Although a persuasive case can be made for the rope model (I’m looking at you, @PhysicsUK and this), the CTM (Coulomb Train Model) is still the best IMHO. For example, which one would be the best when we’re considering RMS values, huh?
  • 2) Two posts on applying the Singapore Bar Model to GCSE Science Topics and ditching those horrible, horrible formula triangles. The first was on Magnification and the second on Kinetic Energy.
  • 1) And my all-time most-viewed blog post is … MARKOPALYPSE NOW!!! (And thanks to Adam Boxer’s A Chemical Orthodoxy for a link that generated many of the views.)

Bubbling under, we have my contribution to the #CurriculumInScience symposium, Using P-Prims For Fun And Profit. I’m hoping this will get a few more views in the New Year.

And on that note: thanks for reading this far and Happy New Year everyone.
