Unformatted text preview: BIOLOGY 216 KINESIOLOGY Fall 1999 INSTRUCTOR : Dr. Bryan Hamilton Office: 509 Stewart Hall Phone: 852-3 379 Office Hours: Prior to class; E-mail: hamilton@waynesburg.edu INFORMATION : Kinesiology is a 3 credit course that meets from 11:00-11:50 a.m. MWF in room 508 Stewart Hall. Anatomy and an introductory Physics are prerequisites for this class. TEXTBOOK : Kinesiology: Biomechanics - A Qualitative Approach for Studying Human Movement. Authors: Kreighbaum and Barthels GOALS : Understand the mechanical aspects of human motion. Examples of expectation of student competency will include: Relate anatomical knowledge to the biophysical aspects of human motion. Relate specific physical parameters to human motion, e.g.: force, velocity, acceleration, momentum, torque... A specific example: Understanding how muscle force vectors translate into torque generation at specific joints to effect motion (linear, angular, projectile...). Seek qualitative understanding of Biomechanical principles through quantitative examples. Throughout the semester we will apply mathematics to the physical parameters of specific human motions to achieve an overall understanding of Biomechanics. Relate all of the above to everyday activities, especially sport related activity....
