As a student and later as a teacher in Nigeria, much of my physics adventures were abstract and done primarily with pen and paper. My work now, teaching physics with a spectrum of tools, blending experimental, computational, and theoretical experiences, is a more incredible adventure. An example is the use of video analysis tools such that matching points aid learning on a graph with frames in the video.
