Anatomy and physiology

Content Knowledge and Student Growth and Development
A. Core Concepts

1. Terminology, principles, concepts, and applications of the basic sciences as related to motor skills and movement activities (e.g.,anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics and kinesiology, motor development and motor learning)

2. Principles of biomechanics and kinesiology as they relate to motor skills and movement patterns (e.g., summation of forces, center of gravity, force/speed relations, torque)

3. Movement concepts (e.g., body awareness, spatial awareness, effort, relationship)

4. Exercise physiology (e.g., components of healthrelated ftness; components of skill-related ftness; ftness guidelines, such as frequency, intensity, time/duration, type/mode; principles of exercise, such as specifcity, overload, progression; roles of body systems in exercise; short- and long-term effects of physical training; nutrition as related to exercise; ftness; metabolic response to exercise)

5. Anatomy and physiology (e.g., skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, and respiratory systems)
