Kinesiology & Biomechanics  by Dr. Melissa Thompson(CC BY-NC-SA)

The OER content in this course shell was originally intended for a 300-level Kinesiology & Biomechanics course. The course is described as providing “an in-depth study of the basic body movements, osteology, applied myology, spatial relations of muscles and joints, aggregate muscle action, kinesiologic constructs of summation of internal forces, aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, techniques for cinematographical and noncinematographical analysis of sport skills. The study of methods, mechanics and analysis of movement as applied to the structure and function of the human organism will also be discussed.”
