  1. When to go ?
    You can go to the PLC whenever you like. Obviously it is a good idea to use it during the hours scheduled for PHY183.

  2. Who can I get help from in the PLC
    The PLC is first and foremost a cooperative learning environment. Please form a study group with fellow students or join an existing group. The TA can help you find a group and will help with physics questions if a group gets stuck. The honors students will join groups and provide help, but we encourage all students to help their classmates - this is often the best way to learn the material.
