The course of hydraulic engineering construction teaching is rich in content, wide in scope of research, but short in duration. Teachers often do not have enough time to teach many knowledge points that need to be mastered in practical engineering. For example, the knowledge point of "wave climbing" is seldom reflected in the course, but practical engineering is inevitable. Based on the concept of case method, this paper designed the teaching path, incorporated relevant specifications, and taught the characteristics, sources, calculation processes and formulas of wave climbing in limited class hours, so that students can understand this knowledge point.
