Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Basic procedures for the assessment of the status and performance of the individual according to the principles of anthropometry, functional anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, and motor learning. Breadth-Science.

COURSE DETAILS:

The objective of BPK 142 is to introduce a variety of topics found in the field of Kinesiology. Theoretical concepts and current laboratory techniques will be discussed. The course consists of two hours of lecture plus a two hour laboratory session per week. Laboratory equipment is limited, thus, students MUST attend the lab session for which they have registered. Laboratory sessions will begin on May 9th.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

The objective of BPK 142 is to introduce a variety of topics found in the realm of Kinesiology. These include anatomy, body composition, growth and development, muscle physiology and strength, biomechanics, pulmonary and cardiovascular physiology, aerobic power, neuromuscular physiology, and motor learning. Fundamental principles will be taught with the emphasis on why things occur. These principles will be applied to living and survival underwater, in cold and hot climates, and on top of Mt Everest.  

The laboratory component will encompass anatomy, proper measurement, testing, and evaluation of physical performance.

Department Undergraduate Notes:

It is the responsibility of the student to keep their BPK course outlines if they plan on furthering their education.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
