Late Spring 2020 Semester Update: As in-person classes have now moved online, I will hold office hours during the first hour and 15 minutes of each scheduled class. If there are still students with questions at the end of the hour and 15 minute period, I will remain online until either all questions have been answered or the end of the full scheduled class time is completed. If the scheduled class time does not work for your schedule given the many new constraints on your time, please let me know and we will schedule some time that does work with your schedule so that you can have the opportunity to ask questions and get help. Starting April 6, "office" hours will be held in the Cranium Cafe within Canvas. Please see the video titled "Changes To PHY 111 Due To Online Instruction." A link to this video can be found within your Canvas shell.

Notes:  I am often in my office and available to help other times besides those listed, so please stop by.  If you want to be guaranteed that I will be in my office, drop me an email (john.griffith@mesacc.edu) and let's set up a time. I also answer questions asked via email.

Really, I want you to come to my office and/or email me when you are having difficulties! Office hours and Office appointments are a good place to come and get help on anything course related, whether it be for help with homework problems, clarifying concepts from class, questions about lab, etc.  Please take advantage of these opportunities anytime you feel like you might be struggling a bit (or even if you just want to come by and chat!).  It is always better to get help early rather than waiting; physics is a building block science, which means that each new topic typically depends on the previous topic.  Holes in early conceptual understanding will continue to surface (and probably spread) as you need to use that information.
