The course of hydraulic engineering construction involves many contents, wide scope and short class hours, and teachers often do not have enough time to teach many knowledge points that need to be mastered in practical projects, among which the knowledge point of "artificially lowering groundwater level" has this characteristic.Based on tube-well method and well-point method, this paper designs the teaching path based on the concept of case teaching method, and makes use of effect drawings, engineering drawings, PPT animation, FLASH animation and engineering cases in limited class hours to make students understand the basic principles, technical characteristics, scope of application, design and calculation of these two0 methods. Finally, the students can initially master the calculation of the displacement of foundation pit, the number and layout of pipe wells in artificially lowering groundwater level, and have the preliminary ability of engineering practice.
