Relationship to Knowledge Base: BASIC This Basic Level Course is primarily related to the Scholar-Practitioner model as a substantive studies course. The kinesiology student should demonstrate knowledge about human movement from the anatomical and biomechanical perspective so that they can analyze movement and motor skills. III. Goals This course is designed to provide basic information on the roles of skeletal muscle as it relates to movement, considering force arms and force vectors. IV. Competencies: Upon completion of the course, the student should be able to 1. Define and explain basic terminology as it applies to the musculoskeletal system 2. Name and define planes of the body and axes of motion by fundamental movements in each plane 3. Describe the function and purpose of the skeletal system 4. Classify joints according to structure and explain the relationship between a joint’s structure and its capacity for movement 5. Describe the structure and function of muscles with regard to contraction 6. Identify the relationship between muscle fiber arrangement and its function 7. Define roles that muscles play 8.
