The Wormhole (Weniger 334 and Remote) is a Physics Collaboration and Help Center. Wormhole is an informal space to work on physics with your peers under the guidance of experienced Assistants. Complete instructions for the Wormhole are in Wormhole instructions.
Wormhole assistants are graduate students in physics, physics majors, or other undergraduates who took one of the introductory physics sequences. They all have a level of expertise in physics, but they’re not experts on your course. When asking questions, be prepared to show them the problem you’re working on. They’ll do their best to answer it but may ultimately refer you to another Wormhole Assistant or to your course instructor. If your question is course related (e.g. How do we use the analysis app in lab?) you should look for a Wormhole Assistant affiliated with your course, as shown in the schedule.
The Virtual Wormhole allows you to request help remotely. You can get help through two different methods:
In the Wormhole use the box on your table. Simply push the button for your course to be put in the queue. In the Virtual Wormhole enter a request at https://wormhole.physics.oregonstate.edu/createticket. An Assistant will respond to your request as soon as your turn comes up in the queue. Help is provided in the order requests are received. You can check the status of your request at https://wormhole.physics.oregonstate.edu/livequeue.
The Wormhole is an informal space for physics collaboration.
It works best when we accord each other common courtesy.
