Unit of study_

Sport Science for HPE 1 - EDHP2005

This unit is the first of two sport science-based units. The purpose of this unit is to raise students' awareness of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics as elements of the biophysical foundations of physical activity and health. Firstly, this unit of study will focus on examining the structure and function of the human body as well as applying this knowledge to a variety of situations related to physical activity and exercise, and how the systems of the body influence and respond to movement. Secondly, students will examine how biomechanical principles can be applied to understand locomotion and sports techniques. Finally, students will investigate the positive contribution of physical activity and sport to health and well-being. This unit draws upon content from the NSW PDHPE stage 4 and 5 Syllabus and Physical Activity and Sport Studies (PASS) Syllabus. Students will examine the numeracy and literacy requirements of the syllabus and will develop knowledge and skills to teach numeracy when analysing movement, solving problems and interpreting physical activity data.
