Kinesiology Workbook and Laboratory Manual.
Harris, Ruth W.
This manual is written for students in anatomy, kinesiology, or introductory biomechanics courses. The book is divided into two sections, a kinesiology workbook and a laboratory manual. The two sections parallel each other in content and format. Each is divided into three corresponding sections: (1) Anatomical bases for movement description; (2) kinetics and human motion; and (3) kinematics and human motion. Each section of the workbook is further subdivided into units which can be considered instructional units. Objectives are stated at the beginning of each unit of the workbook. Concepts, principles, and procedures necessary to reach those objectives follow, often in the format of programmed instruction. Examples of application to human motion are made. There is a series of movements to analyze or problems to solve. Correct solutions are provided to help the students determine whether or not they have mastered the material and reached the stated objectives for that unit. Laboratory experiments in each section are designed to reinforce the students' knowledge of the concepts and theories of that section of the workbook and to give them experience in using the scientic method of investigation.
