Who's it for?
This chapter of our earth science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about ground water and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:
- Struggle with understanding ground water systems, factors that influence ground water movement or any other ground water topic
- Have limited time for studying
- Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
- Prefer learning science visually
- Find themselves failing or close to failing their ground water unit
- Cope with ADD or ADHD
- Want to get ahead in earth science
- Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class
Why it works:
- Engaging Tutors: We make learning about ground water simple and fun.
- Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
- Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live earth science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
- Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about ground water on the go!
- Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
- Describe the geological role of ground water.
- List the factors that affect ground water movement.
- Identify the different types of springs and wells.
- Learn about the environmental problems associated with ground water.
- Explain how caverns and sinkholes form.
1. Groundwater System: Definition & Geological Role
Surprisingly, most of Earth's liquid freshwater is not where you might think! In this video lesson, you will learn about groundwater, as well as the important roles it plays in sustaining life and shaping Earth.
2. Factors that Influence Groundwater Movement
The movement of groundwater underneath us is influenced by several factors. In this video lesson, you will learn what these factors are and how they affect how and where groundwater moves.
3. Springs: Definition, Formation & Types
In this video lesson, you will learn about springs and how they form. You will also understand how springs are classified based on how they flow as well as how strongly they flow.
4. Wells: Definition & Types
Wells are used all over the world and are an important source of water for many people. In this video lesson you will identify different types of wells, as well understand their underground source of water.
5. Environmental Problems Associated With Groundwater
Groundwater is an important natural resource, but like many of our other resources, it's affected by the surrounding environment and human activities. In this video lesson, you'll learn about some of the environmental problems associated with groundwater and why groundwater is especially vulnerable to them.
6. Caverns & Sinkholes: Definition, Formation & Effects
Groundwater can have dramatic effects on Earth's landscape, both above and below ground. In this video lesson you will learn about caverns and sinkholes, both of which are directly related to groundwater movement.
7. Stalactite: Definition & Formation
If you walk into a cave there is a great chance you will see a stalactite hanging from the ceiling. Discover what a stalactite is and how nature uses rainwater to form these structures.
8. What is a Hot Spring? - Definition & Explanation
Learn about hot springs and what heats these pools of water. Explore the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, and in Warm Springs, Georgia, and learn how hot springs can be used as sources of renewable energy.
