commit to the mission of the college EXSS 3020 EXERCISE AND SPORT MECHANICS Course Description This course will be an introduction to the biomechanical foundations of human movement including the knowledge and skills needed to analyze and evaluate the mechanics of human motor performance in order to prescribe appropriate interventions to optimize it Knowledge of anatomykinesiologyfunctional anatomy will be expected and basic trigonometry and calculus will be used This course will have some mathematical modeling so you will need a calculator with trig functions Prerequisites BIOL 201011 202021 EXSS 2010 2020 3050 3405 Lack of prerequisites severely compromises your chances for success in this course as it is meant to build on previous knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology Texts McGinnis P Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise 2quotd ed Human Kinetics 2004 Handouts will be posted at httpumdrivememphisedubschllngEXSSBO20 Support of Conceptual Framework Through the learning and application of current research and effective practice in biomechanics students with diverse abilities and experience levels are able to increase their knowledge of the mechanics of human movement Methods of Instruction Lecture Key Assessments A Basic Considerations 1 Define a movement system and determine the nature of the system s movement ie linear angular general motion 2 Appropriately represent kinematic and kinetic quantities as vectors and use vectors vector addition and vector resolution to enhance the understanding of basic mechanical concepts eg impact ofthe direction of resultant force application external forces the effect of changes in line of muscle pull upon the amount of force used to rotate a segment internal forces B Movement Kinematics 1 Define the basic terms of distance displacement speed velocity and acceleration as they relate to linear and angular motion in human movements 2 Use kinematic variables to compare the quality ofvarious motor performances eg across skill level fitness level gender age body size and type etc 3 Explain the kinematic relationships between linear and angular motion and apply this relationship to improve motor skill performance eg striking throwing kicking and equipment design eg sport rehabilitation work environment Fall 2009 The University ofMemphis EXSS3020 Schilling 4 Describe how the variables of release height angle and velocity affect projectile motion and apply these variables to a projectile activity to optimize performance C Movement Kinetics 1 Define basic terms eg force inertia mass and weight as they relate to linear motion in human movement 2 Define basic terms eg torque moment moment of inertia moment arm radius as they relate to angular motion 3 State the linear and angular forms of Newton39s laws of motion and explain the relationship between the observed movements of a body experiencing linear or angular motion and the forcestorques responsible for that motion 4 Explain the effects of weight normal reaction friction buoyancy drag and lift upon motor performance 5 Estimate the location of the center of gravity of persons in any position and describe how changes in location of the center of gravity and other mechanical factors that influence stability 6 Identify and explain the importance of impulsemomentum workenergy and the conservation of momentum to the production of effective human movements D Technology in Biomechanics 1 Explain basic electronics and analog to digital conversion 2 Explain the fundamentals of EMG for analysis of muscle function 3 Explain the use of force platforms for analysis of ground reaction forces and sway vertical only static and dynamic balance and gait 4 Explain the use of linear position and velocity transducers and the underlying technology 5 Explain the use of 2D and 3D video analysis and how it can be used in conjunction with other data collection methods Exams and Grading Criteria Exam 1 20 September 10 Exam

as well as calculations Exams will cover material upto and including the last class period Extra credit may be available for participation as a subject or in certain cases as a research assistant in research projects conducted through any of the Human Performance Laboratories Due to the uneven nature of requirements for these types of activities participation awards will be determined on an individual basis generally no more than 10 points added to the nal point total and I will be the sole determiner of any extra credit awards You must get my written approval for an activity to be considered for extra credit prior to initiating it as some activities may be unacceptable for this purpose Please do not wait until the end of the term to initiate your involvement in an extra credit project No other extra credit activities aside from involvement in faculty directed research studies will be available so please do not count on this to supplement your point total AWARDING AN INCOMPLETE GRADE A grade of l Incomplete may be assigned by the Instructor of any course in which the student is unable to complete the work due to EXTRAORDINARY events beyond the individual s control The I may not be used to extend the term for students who complete the course with an unsatisfactory grade Unless the student completes the requirements for removal of the l within 45 days for undergraduate courses from the end of the semester or Summerterm in which it was received the I will be changed Attendance Attendance is expected and required at all meetings but attendance is not recorded If you cannot be in class on a given day please email or call regarding your absence BEFORE class meets if at all possible It is your responsibility to inquire about and obtain the missed information if you fail to show up for class Additionally you will lose points for missed quizzes or assignments not turned in if you are absent or late Advanced notice and a reasonable excuse are required for making up exams at a later date or time Without these you forfeit your right to take the exam and will lose the available points Class time will not be spent to catch upthose who choose not to attend Americans with Disabilities Act The University of Memphis does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the recruitment and admission of students the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff and the operation of any of its programs and activities as specified by federal laws and regulations The student has the responsibility of informing the course instructor at the beginning of the course of any disabling condition which will require modi cation to avoid discrimination Faculty are required by law to provide quotreasonable accommodationquot to students with disabilities so as not Fall 2009 The University of Memphis 2 EXSS3020 Schilling
