Suggestions on
Preparation and
Lessons 1, 2, 7: Review the concept of hydrostatic pressure and momentum and energy conservation law.
Lessons 3 to 6, 8 to 11: Each lesson interrelates, so keep in mind to understand not only each concept but also relation to others.
Lessons 12 to 15: Learn about pipe flow. Pay attention to common and different characteristics of pipe flow and open channel flow. 
Grading Method Grade is calculated based on the reports submitted in each lesson.
