Topographic Maps II (Stream Movement & Gradient)

Unit 7: Landscapes & Mapping
Lesson 7 of 8

Objective: SWBAT calculate the topographic gradient and the direction of stream movement in topographic maps

Big Idea: In this lesson, students cover two things. First, we explore how to mathematically calculate the gradient for topographic profiles before moving on to figuring out the direction of stream movement. Two important concepts covered in one lesson!
