The Wormhole

(Physics Help Center)

 

Hours

Below are the WormHole hours and the TAs/LAs hosting them. All students are welcome to come at any time and work or ask questions. If possible you should run sessions  by your TA or a TA from your class. 

You can ask for help from any Assistant, but sometimes those connected to your course may be more familiar with your questions. Consider this when choosing times to visit.

 The WormHole is an informal space to collaborate on your physics work with others under the guidance of TAs and LAs.

Code of Conduct

The Wormhole is an informal space for physics collaboration.

It works best when we accord each other common courtesy.

 Be respectful of other students.
  • Respect others' personal and work spaces.
  • Be conscious of aromas.
  • Be aware of your speech.
  • Respect those who will use the space next.
  • Be mindful of the learning environment.
Be respectful of the Assistants.
  • Be patient - the Assistants will help as many people as possible.
  • Remember that Assistants assist.  They are there to help you learn, not do the problem or tell you the answer.
  • Assistants will try to help everyone, but be patient when they aren't familiar with the problem in your course.
  • The Wormhole gets crowded.  If you're not working on physics, please give up your space to those who are.
 

Following these guidelines will help ensure the Wormhole remains a place where everyone can learn effectively.

##############  GRAVEYARD  ##############

•an informal space designed to give students a place to collaborate on physics problems with their peers
•under the guidance of Student Assistants (LA’s and TA’s).

We have an open-door policy but do ask that you follow some guidelines while using the Wormhole:

–Scan your ID when entering the room.  This helps ensure we allocate enough resources to the Wormhole.
–If you would like help from an Assistant, enter your table and course number in the queue.  Assistants will address those in the queue first.  This helps ensure all questions are addressed in a fair manner.
–Be respectful of other students.
§Respect others’ personal and work space.
§Be conscious of odors you create, including snacks or meals.
§Avoid loud or offensive speech.  Those who cannot will be asked to leave.
§Clean up your area before you leave.
–Be respectful of the Assistants.
§Assistants address questions in order.  Coming during less crowded times will increase your access to help.
§The Assistants are here to assist your learning when your text, notes, and peers aren’t enough.  Don’t expect them to give you the answer.
–The Wormhole can only support physics.  Assistants will prioritize questions from physics courses.  For help with other subjects you should visit the appropriate department help.
