Physics Help Room Information:

Duane Physics, Room G2B90.  Monday thru Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm

The Physics Help Room (Duane G2B90) is in the basement, below the lecture hall. It is a great place to get assistance with homework, or get general coursequestions answered. It can be crowded (especially the night homework is due), but that means it's very likely you will find fellow students (even if the TAs are a little busy.) Times when specific TAs will be in the Help Room are posted in the website, but you can drop by anytime Monday - Friday between 9:00am - 5:00pm
