PSE4U Exam Review by KRb6iE


									                                       PSE4U Exam Review
Anything we have covered during the semester is fair game for your final exam. You should study from:

       Written notes
       PowerPoint notes
       Tests
       Assignments
       Your textbook
       Your friend’s brains – discussion is good!

Bone Anatomy & Muscle Anatomy

Anatomical position and directions of movement, planes and axes.

Describe the various parts of the skeletal and muscular system, and the ways in which they relate to
human performance (e.g. according to their location, structure, function and characteristics).


Explain the laws of physics as they related to movement (ie, Newton’s laws related to levers, velocity
and linear acceleration).

Describe biomechanical principles (ie, stability, the relationship between force and movement).

Apply knowledge of the phases of a skill (ie, the phases of a golf stroke, backswing, critical instant,
follow-through) to analyse movement.

Energy Systems

Demonstrate an understanding of the energy systems (ie, anaerobic alactic/lactic, aerobic) and their
contributions to activity (ie, long distance running as compared to sprinting).

Body Systems

Show a basic understanding of the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system and the nervous
system. You should be able to identify how the systems are related and how when one changes it
affects the others.

Strength & Conditioning

Describe muscle contraction, demonstrating their understanding of sliding filament theory and the use of
adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and calcium.

Evaluate the effects of various training methods on performance (ie, effects of sports-specific and non-
specific training, effects of overtraining, principles of training).


Describe the relationship between nutrition and activity (ie, caloric balance, nutrient balance).

Know the caloric content of each macronutrient and how it applies to RMR and exercise.

Functional Movement Skills

Be able to explain the key points of several of the function movement skills.

Integrate the functional movement skills into a practice or lesson with measureable results.

Sample Questions:
True and False:

T       F         5. Eversion involves moving the top of the foot upward toward the shin.

T       F         6. Abduction occurs when one moves a body part toward the midline.

T       F         7. Extension takes place when the angle between two bones is increased.

T       F         8. BMI is based on a ratio between height and weight.

T       F         9. Vitamins and minerals are examples of macronutrients.

T       F         10. One gram of fat is equal to 4 kcal.

T       F         11. Rest between sets increases as you move through the stages of periodization in
strength training.

T        F       12. The principle of individual differences holds that in order for specific outcomes to
occur, training exercises must be specific to these outcomes.

T       F         13. Concussions must be treated with rest and time.

T       F         14. A common injury to many land-based sports is an ankle sprain.

T       F          15. ATP breaks down to phosphate and creatine in the energy cycle.
