Upon the completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Define the terms biomechanics, statics, dynamics, kinematics, and kinetics
and explain the ways in which they are related.
2. Distinguish between qualitative and quantitative approaches for analyzing
3. Provide examples of linear, angular, and general forms of motion.
4. Identify and describe the different types of mechanical loads that act on the
Material will be presented primarily in the form of lectures, readings assignments
from the text, and occasionally films. Lecture will cover the points to be learned
and will direct your study from the text, however some material will be presented
in class that is not in the text. Thus, you should attend class, pay attention while
there, and take notes of material covered. You should plan on 2 hours of study
outside of class for every hour in lecture. The material in the latter part of the
course will be based upon material presented in the first part of the course,
therefore you will have to truly understand earlier material.
Your progress will be determined based upon your overall knowledge of the above
objectives,class participation and ability to apply class room theory. A term long project
will also be evaluated.
