dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis is to use basic ideas of Mathematics and Physics, such as Darcy's Law and the Law of Conservation of Mass to derive a differential equation to model the flow of groundwater. This equation will then be solved analytically for the two-dimensional groundwater flow equation, which will be a function that describes the head height of groundwater at a certain point at any given time. The differential equation will also be solved by a numerical method, using basic laws of Calculus. The two methods — analytical and numerical — will then be compared by applying each one to an example problem, and another possible method for solving the example problem will arise from the comparison.
