Course Description

This course will examine the application of elementary principles of physics and mathematics to a quantitative analysis of movement. Analysis will also focus on the development of forces within muscles and their effect on initiating and controlling human movement.

Prerequisite(s): KINS 1151 relies on a basic knowledge of high school math principles (basic algebra, trigonometry). Students without a "B" in Precalculus 11 or a "C+" in Precalculus 12, or a score of 70 on the Langara Math Diagnostic Test, should strongly consider taking MATH 1150 prior to this course.

College credit will be given for only one of the following courses: KINS 1151 or 2215.
