INTRODUCTION

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.

LECTURE QUIZZES

There will be lecture quizzes done randomly during the semester. The material is based on the previous and/or current lecture. You must be present to get credit for the quiz. It cannot be made up outside of the class.

MIDTERM LECTURE EXAM

Format – fill-in-the-blank questions, short answer, essay, and/or student provided questions.  The exam will be based on lecture material (including Word files, PowerPoint files, and oral communication in lecture) to the end of the Biomechanics lectures.

Percent contribution to final grade – ~12 %

MIDTERM LABORATORY EXAM

Format - this exam will consist (units 1-15) of an anatomy exam (oesteology, arthrology, myology, and organs) and the following categories of questions:

  1. a) Describe a procedure (detailed description of how to measure) - anthropometry, flexibility testing, muscle testing.
  2. b) Calculations - from Biomechanics Lab as described in "Laboratory Review Questions - Part 1".
  3. c) Movement analysis question(s) - a diagram of a movement will be given, and you must analyze all of the joint actions and prime mover muscles.

Percent contribution to final grade – ~10 %

ANATOMY EXAM

Anatomy exam in lab - You will be examined on all of the anatomy (this includes structures, some functions, and some movements) that has been covered in the laboratory sessions in BPK 142.

Percent contribution to final grade – 10 %

FINAL LABORAOTRY EXAM

Written exam in final exam period - units 16, 18, and 20-21 including the following categories:

  1. a) Cardiovascular anatomy
  2. b) Describe a procedure (detailed description of how to measure), e.g., blood pressure, Astrand Test.
  3. c) Movement analysis question(s) - a diagram of a movement will be given, and you must analyze all of the joint actions and prime mover muscles.
  4. d) You will be asked to do a heart rate calculation, work rate calculation, and a ventilatory calculation.

Percent contribution to final grade – 15 %

FINAL LECTURE EXAM

Format –fill-in-the-blank questions and short answers and student provided questions.  The exam will be based on lecture material starting from the "Biomechanics" lecture onwards (Biomechanics is on the final lecture exam).  You are not responsible for lecture material prior to the Biomechanics lecture, for the final lecture exam.

Percent contribution to final grade – 23 %

MAKE-UP EXAMS

All make-up exams will be worth the same percentage and cover the same material. The format may be different and will not be given prior to the exam.

There are no extra assignments one can do to increase their mark so please do not ask for any.

MISSED EXAMINATION

A missed exam can only be rewritten if medical evidence of inability to write the exam is presented within 4 days of the scheduled exam. Please contact the instructor if you have missed or are unable to attend a scheduled midterm or final exam. You must also download and complete a Health Care Provider Statement from the SFU web site and hand it in to the course instructor.

The grading profile is standard for BPK. See http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/teaching/t20-01.html for more details

GENERAL LABORATORY INSTRUCTIONS

1) All students are expected to be online in scheduled laboratory time.
2) At the beginning of each laboratory session, a short pre-lab quiz will be held and then the operation of new and unfamiliar equipment will be demonstrated.
3) Because of limitations in time, personnel and resources, make-up labs will not be allowed. Legitimate excuses for not being able to attend or participate in a laboratory session should be discussed with the teaching assistant or instructor IN ADVANCE.
4) You must attend the laboratory session for which you are registered. If, due to unavoidable circumstances for one week, you are unable to attend your regular laboratory session, you must obtain prior permission from the teaching assistant before attending a different laboratory session.

EXPERIMENT SUMMARY SHEETS

  1. Experiment Summary Sheets are required for most of the experiments that are performed in this course. Do not log out until you are sure that you have collected and recorded all of the required information. Experiment Summary Sheets must be handed at the start of lab the following week. Summary sheets that are submitted late will be assessed a late penalty of 10 percent per day late (including weekends).
  2. You may submit data sheets ONLY for those lab sessions that you have attended. If you miss a lab session without PRIOR permission from your teaching assistant and a valid medical note, you will receive a mark of zero for the section of the data sheets concerned. Because of limitations in time, personnel and resources, make up labs will not be allowed. Legitimate excuses for not being able to attend or participate in a laboratory session should be discussed with the teaching assistant or instructor IN ADVANCE.

PRE-LAB QUIZZES

At exactly 30 minutes past the hour, at the beginning of the lab, a quick five question quiz will be held. This will focus on the unit material read in advance for the current lab as indicated in the lab schedule reading list. If you are late for the lab you will have missed the quiz.

 

Academic honesty and student conduct

Academic honesty is a condition of continued membership in the University community.

Academic dishonesty, including plagiarism or any other form of cheating is subject to serious academic penalty, i.e. failure on an assignment, failure in a course, suspension or expulsion from the University.

The University codes of student conduct and academic honesty are contained in policies T10.01 and T10.02 which are available in the Course Timetable and on the Web via http://www.reg.sfu.ca.

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 SPRING 2022

Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place.  Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this 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 spring 2022 term.
