Gender?

Guten tag I'm new here but really loving this program. I seem to have confused myself a little while trying to learn genders of nouns. Yesterday I learnt in Part one of gender that a masculine noun uses 'DER'... however today part 2, Glass Wasser is 'DAS WASSER'. As Wasser ends in ER, I thought it was Masculine? Perhaps I've just managed to pick an exception? Thank you for any help you can give. I'm trying to learn with my 13 year old son to make it easier for him at school too so need to make sure I'm right. Claire.
