Fall 2022 - BPK 142 D100

Introduction to Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology (3)

Class Number: 4975

Delivery Method: In Person

Overview

  • Course Times + Location:

    Tu 8:30 AM – 10:20 AM
    AQ 3182, Burnaby

  • Prerequisites:

    One of Grade 12 Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, Chemistry or Physics with a grade of C or better; or one of BPK 105, BPK 110, BPK 143, BISC 100, BISC 113 or HSCI 100 with a grade of C or better.

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. 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.

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. 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.

Laboratory sessions will begin on September 7 in K8640.

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
