Tutorial and Help
In the Open Physics Room peers help to cope with understanding the lectures, and provide help in dealing with homework exercises. Abril will be available to answer questions and provide help with the homeworks.
|Wed 13 – 15 pm||Linnéstr, seminar room 220|
|Thu 11 – 13 pm||Linnéstr, seminar room 221|
This time may/might still be changed depending on your and Abril's availabilities.
Please contact Abril for more information.
After the lecture on Friday I will offer a Question Time where we can revisit and consolidate core concepts relevant in the TP1 course:
|Fri 5 pm -…||Linnéstr, Theoretischer Hörsaal, room 294|
Everybody is invited to join this event. Requests for topics to be addressed in the Tutorial can be posted here.
Each week there will be a set of homework exercises. For each problem there will be a discussion page, and after the submission deadline I will publish the solutions to selected problems. On request I also offer suggestions for further study.
The exam will be conducted
- on Friday, 17. Feb 2023 — 11:00am – 14:30pm
- in Physics building, Linnéstraße, Großer Hörsaal 205
This is a 3 hour exam, and we have some additional time for distribution and collection.
The requirement for participation is that you have earned a TP1 exam admission in a previous year, or that you have reached a score of at least 50% in the exercises.
The date for the retake will be announced as soon as it is scheduled.
Admission to the exam
If you score at least 50% of the points on your exercise sheets you will right away be admitted to the exam. You can double the points scored in an exercise by presenting your solution in your seminar.
In my lecture notes I provide
- an exposition of the topics covered in the lectures,
- material for follow-up course work,
- material for further reading.
Further details are available at the Lecture Notes Overview page.
This year the TP1 team comprises the following members
|Abril Gutierrezfirstname.lastname@example.org||tutorial and wiki|
| Tom Lübbeke | email@example.com | correction and seminar | | Abhinav Dhull | firstname.lastname@example.org-Leipzig.de | correction and stand-in | | Thiyagarajan Ranganathan | email@example.com | correction and sage |
If you encounter problems of questions:
- check out first if there is an appropriate discussion field in the wiki to post that problem
- do not hesitate to contact us if this is not the case
For selected problems I will set up a Sage playground, where you can explore the solutions to a range of problems in theoretical mechanics based on interactive Sage templates.
- extension of the wiki and requests for help
- tips and tricks concerning issues with university emails, moodle, almaweb, this wiki, etc
- general discussion, feedback, and information about you
- summer schools and camps that you might find of interest
There are discussion forms on all pages. Viable suggestions and solutions will be promoted from the discussion to Howtos in the main part of the pages. Regular contributors will earn the right to directly edit the pages.
