In this unit students will gain an understanding of the key biomechanical principles that are important for an exercise scientist, strength and conditioning specialist or exercise physiologist to know. Students will combine these principles with their knowledge of functional anatomy as they learn the basics of performance analysis in various human movements.
- How and why we move
- The body as a machine
- Working with energy and maintaining momentum
- Moving through a fluid
- Integrating concepts 1
- Integrating concepts 2
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||apply numeracy in relevant biomechanical contexts|
|2||explain and apply biomechanical concepts|
|3||integrate and apply musculoskeletal functional anatomy with biomechanical concepts as a whole in examples of human motion|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- apply numeracy in relevant biomechanical contexts
- explain and apply biomechanical concepts
- integrate and apply musculoskeletal functional anatomy with biomechanical concepts as a whole in examples of human motion
