(I just added this to my "about" page.) I have been remiss in not mentioning my wife on this “about” page. You see, I really and truly couldn’t be doing this without her. She supports me completely. She supported me when I quit my “real” teaching job to start a company with an amazing vision and no profits. Even though she has never taken a physics class in her life, she watches every minute of every video and gives constructive criticism. She provides a wonderful sounding board and knows how to tell me one of my ideas is terrible without putting me down. We met when I was 16 and we are still in love today. Kate, thank you so much for all your help.
This FaceBook Message made me really happy and I had to share. Thanks, John Clark, for your kind words and for letting me post this:
"Mr P, thank you SO MUCH for everything you've done with Flipping Physics. You make learning physics even more enjoyable and you're an awesome instructor! I'm 42 years old and had a heart attack on 10/11/12. The paramedics defibbed me 3 times to revive me. I've always had a fascination with the sciences (physics in particular) so I made up my mind to go back to school. I'm in Phy 201 this semester (Chm 111, Precalc II and an Ethics class-- I also work full-time) and I've gotten more out of your videos and way of teaching than I have from my book (and quite honestly, it's the best resource for me I've found on the web...even better than Khan Academy). We're utilizing a flipped class in Physics so I can't begin to tell you how helpful you've been. THANK YOU - John Clark"
This holiday vacation I have pretty much taken a break from working on Flipping Physics. Sure I have written a couple of Lecture Notes for videos I plan to do soon, submitted an Annual Report for Flipping Physics, LLC and published the FP Trailer, however, really, I haven't done much. It's pretty clear that the rest of the United States has taken a large break from learning about physics as well. However, something funny happened starting in 2014.
Singapore discovered Flipping Physics. So far In 2014 approximately 61% of the time spent on my website has been by people in Singapore. In fact, only 27% of the time spent on the website in 2014 has been by people in the US.
Contrast that with December of 2013 where 78% of the time was by people in the US and only 0.4% was by people in Singapore.
Slowly, but surely, Flipping Physics is TAKING OVER THE WORLD!!
Yep, I make physics videos in the hope that you can learn physics. If you are a physics teacher, I am very hopeful that you will want to use them to help flip your physics class.
