Textbooks and Required Resources: Textbook selection varies by instructor and may change from year to year. At the Course Outline Effective Date the following textbooks were in use: McGinnis, Peter. M. Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise. Human Kinetics. 2005. Please see instructor's Syllabus for a complete list of the current required textbooks.

LEARNING OUTCOMES: University Studies at the College of the Rockies allow students to complete their first two years of study towards a university degree. College students gain academic knowledge and skills in their chosen subjects. They also cover general problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The combination can empower them to participate as educated citizens in the economic, political, and cultural life of their communities. Upon the successful completion of this course, you should be able to: · · · · · · · · · · · understand the scope of exercise and sport biomechanics, in addition to identifying goods & describe methods used to achieve goals in exercise and sport biomechanics. name and identify the segments, large bones, joints and major muscles of the body. understand and use anatomical terminology to describe movement. understand the organization of mechanics, basic dimensions used in mechanics and apply each of Newton's laws of motion to various exercises and sport skills. understand and classify "force" and how it applies to linear, angular and general motion. understand work, power and energy and how motion is caused without Newton. understand torques and movements of force in exercise and sport. understand fluid mechanics and how they apply to water sports. understand the mechanical forces of the human body during sport and exercise. understand the structure and physiology of the skeletal, muscular and nervous system, and how they adopt to the various forces placed on them in sport and exercise. understand and apply qualitative and quantitative analysis to a specific sport or exercise skill.

This course should help you: · · · · · · use written and oral communication skills effectively, employing methods appropriate to message and context. think clearly and critically, fusing experience, knowledge and reasoning into considered judgment. identify, interpret, and solve problems, effectively implementing and evaluating proposed strategies. read and understand text. use technology to find information and learn. complete a video analysis of individual sport skills.

Please see the instructor's syllabus for specific classroom policies related to this course, such as details of evaluation, penalties for late assignments, and use of electronic aids.

EXAM POLICY Students must attend all required scheduled exams that make up a final grade at the appointed time and place. Individual instructors may accommodate for illness or personal crisis. Additional accommodation will not be made unless a written request is sent to and approved by the appropriate Department Head prior to the scheduled exam. Any student who misses a scheduled exam without approval will be given a grade of "0" for the exam.

COURSE GRADE Course grades are assigned as follows:

Grade Mark (Percent) A+ 90 A 89-85 A84-80 B+ 79-76 B 75-72 B71-68 C+ 67-64 C 63-60 C59-55 D 54-50 F < 50

A grade of "D" grants credit, but may not be sufficient as a prerequisite for sequential courses.

ACADEMIC POLICIES See for general college policies related to course activities, including grade appeals, cheating and plagiarism.

COURSE CHANGES: Information contained in course outlines is correct at the time of publication. Content of the courses is revised on an ongoing basis to ensure relevance to changing educational, employment, and marketing needs. The instructor endeavours to provide notice of changes to students as soon as possible. The instructor reserves the right to add or delete material from courses.
