1. What is Kinesiology?

Ans: Simply stated, Kinesiology is the study of movement. Primarily it is the study of human movement. As a discipline, Kinesiology is quite interdisciplinary in nature as Kinesiologists study movement from a variety of perspectives. They use the tools of physiology, physics, psychology, sociology, history, philosophy, and other academic disciplines to understand, describe, predict, and allow the control of human movement. For the most part the movement of interest is found in sport and exercise programs, but it may extend to other movement contexts.


2.What is Physical Education?

Ans
:Since we now use the term "Kinesiology" to refer to the academic discipline, we reserve the term "Physical Education" for the profession. Physical educators teach sports, dance, aquatics, adventure activities, fitness activities, and other forms of movement to students in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities. The courses they teach comprise the physical education curriculum.
