Introduction to Kinesiology: Studying Physical Activity, 5th Edition, (PDF/ePub) With Web Study Guide, gives students a complete overview of the field of kinesiology and explores the common career paths, questions, and ideas that are part of this dynamic and expanding discipline. This engaging, four-color introductory textbook stimulates curiosity about the vast field of kinesiology, provides a foundation for students to build on through further study, and generates awareness of the long-standing and current issues that kinesiology professionals seek to understand and solve. Editors Shirl J. Hoffman and Duane V. Knudson have retained the ebook’s robust framework and used instructor feedback to streamline and condense the textbook while adding new and updated content.

The latest Fifth Edition features a wholly revitalized web study guide that encourages students to apply classroom content to real-world activities and better prepare for exams. The web study guide integrates reading assignments with gradable activities so that instructors can better monitor student progress, test understanding of key concepts, and adjust classroom discussions and pace.

Additional updates to this new 5th Edition include the following:

• Updates to data, research, and graphics to incorporate the most recent discoveries

• An increased focus on public health, allied health, and nutrition and wellness to reflect changes in this dynamic and growing field

• New Kinesiology Colleagues’ sidebars that introduce role models who demonstrate professional life in kinesiology and its related fields

• New Professional Issues in Kinesiology sidebars that look at the issues of equality, evidence-based practice, expertise, and overload as they relate to the field of kinesiology

The textbook features the three-section structure that has always been a strength of this leading introductory textbook. Part I examines the diversity of physical activity and kinesiology and summarizes the importance of knowledge gained through physical activity experiences. Part II delves into the seven significant subdisciplines of kinesiology, with an overview of major historical events, research methods, professional work and application, and ideas for career advancement in each. Part III elaborates on professionalism and examines five main career opportunity areas.

The extensive and revitalized instructor ancillaries include an instructor guide, a test package, chapter quizzes, a presentation package, and an image bank that includes most art and tables from the textbook.
