PHED 4605 Applied Biomechanics 2/2/3

Prerequisite: Admission to Teacher Education program

This course applies the core concepts of anatomy and mechanical physics to human motion. Kinematic (distance, speed, acceleration) and kinetic (force, momentum, torque) concepts related to motion along a straight line (linear motion) and around an axis of rotation (angular motion) are major themes of this course. The student will apply these concepts in analyzing exercise and sport skills. Applied activities engage students with fundamental concepts and principles of biomechanics that are essential to effective movement analysis.
