    Oh I don't teach, I'm retired and have a job as a physics lab tech. The curriculum has only just changed and with the changes came a new requirement to use analogue as well as digital.
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.

    If you have a unstable read out it is easier to see the mid point of a needle swinging than numbers flashing up on a digital meter

    I quite agree, and it is great for demonstration. If you want to show induction principles. We still use reflecting galvanometers too.

    I worked at a community college campus that changed out all the analog clocks and replaced them with digital because there were complaints from the students that they could not tell the time.

    Ron, if it was a master clock system, the digital clocks were about 3 times the price of analog.
