Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Survey of theories and laboratory procedures for assessing human health status and physical performance, including biomechanics, body composition, development, environmental physiology, ergonomics, exercise physiology and motor learning. Functional anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, skeletal and skeletal muscle systems in relation to physical activity are explored. Breadth-Science.

COURSE DETAILS:

The objective of BPK 142 is to introduce a variety of topics found in the field of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology. Theoretical concepts and current laboratory techniques will be discussed. This remote course will include a one hour live lecture and a two hour live laboratory session each week. This is the second time that we have offered this course remotely and we may need to modify the schedule during the semester.

Lecture: synchronous (9-10 am on Tuesday); asynchronous (recorded lectures)

Laboratory: synchronous (2 hours); Lab sessions start the first week of classes (Sept 8 - 10)

Students MUST attend the online lab session for which they have registered.

The laboratory manual is essential, and you will be able to download an electronic version of the lab manual from the BPK 142 Canvas site.

ANATOMY EXAM

 


The BPK 142 labs will be run synchronously online. You must attend the lab that you are registered for.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

The objective of BPK 142 is to introduce a variety of topics found in the realm of Biomedical Physiology and 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.

Grading

  • 9 Pre-Lab quizzes 5%
  • Lecture participation/quiz 5%
  • Experiment Summary Sheets 15%
  • Midterm Lecture Exam (Week 7) 15%
  • Midterm Lab Exam (Week 7) 13%
  • Anatomy exam (Week 13) 10%
  • Final Lab Exam (Exam period) 12%
  • Final Lecture Exam (Exam Period) 25%

NOTES:

Course Website Address: http://www.sfu.ca/canvas.html

REQUIREMENTS:

Prerequisite: Recommended: Grade 11 Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students with credit for BPK 142 may not take this course for further credit. Breadth-Science.

You will require a computer with a camera and microphone for this remote course. You will be using Microsoft Excel for some of the lab exercises. You will require a stable highspeed internet connection for lectures, labs and exams.

All exams will be proctored using Zoom or auto proctoring software recommended by SFU.

Materials

REQUIRED READING:

Asmundson, R.C., Carter, J., Walsh, M. and Ward, R., BPK 142 – Introduction to Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology Laboratory Manual. Thirteenth Edition. Simon Fraser University, 2020.


RECOMMENDED READING:

There is no single text that fully encompasses the topics in this course. All lecture Word and PowerPoint files will be put on Canvas. There is also an online OpenStax Anatomy and Physiology textbook that you will be to download for free from the BPK 142 Canvas site

The laboratory manual is essential and can be obtained from the SFU Bookstore.

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:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

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

TEACHING AT SFU IN FALL 2021

Teaching at SFU in fall 2021 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with approximately 70 to 80 per cent of classes in person/on campus, with safety plans in place.  Whether your course will be in-person or through remote methods will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the fall 2021 term.
