Daily Objectives #3 (January 20, 2009)                                        Dr. Sanders

By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:

v Water Flow:  Describe in words what makes water flow.  Using simple sketches, show how water would flow from one container (like a rain barrel) into another if they were connected by hoses.  Explain what would make water flow from one portion of a saturated porous medium (e.g. sand with water in it) to another portion of the same medium.

v Water Flow--Lab Explorations: Investigate, discover, and articulate the general principles that describe the movement of water and the factors that drive it.  Use simple lab set-ups to investigate the movement of water through open conduits and through porous media.
