Hello and welcome to this exam preparation course for Year 12 Physical Education Unit 3 & 4 (VCE, HSC, GCSE)
My goal for this course is simple: to equip you to pass your upcoming exams.
Now, the assumption is that you’ve been putting in the hard work all in Year 11 and all through this year as well. This course is designed to help you remember most of the key concepts and to get into exam answering mode!
These are the Key Knowledge points that we’ll cover in this course. For full details, check out the VCE, HSC or GCSE Physical Education Study Design 2018-2023:
- Classification of movement skills including fundamental movement skills, sport specific skills, open and closed skills, gross and fine skills, and discrete, serial and continuous motor skills
- Influences on movement including individual, task and environmental constraints on motor skill development
- The link between motor skill development and participation and performance
- characteristics of the three energy systems (ATP–CP, anaerobic glycolysis, aerobic system) for physical activity, including rate of ATP production, the yield of each energy system, fatigue/limiting factors and recovery rates associated with active and passive recoveries
- interplay of energy systems in relation to the intensity, duration and type of activity
- fitness components: definitions and factors affecting aerobic power, agility, anaerobic capacity, balance, body composition, coordination, flexibility, muscular endurance, power and strength, reaction time and speed
- assessment of fitness including:
– the purpose of fitness testing including physiological, psychological and sociocultural perspectives
– pre-participation health screening (PAR-Q)
– informed consent
– test aims and protocols
– test reliability and validity
- methods of at least two standardised, recognised tests for aerobic power, agility, anaerobic capacity, body composition, flexibility, muscular endurance, power and strength and speed.
- training program principles, including frequency, intensity, time, type, progression, specificity, individuality, diminishing returns, variety, maintenance, overtraining and detraining
- training methods including continuous, interval (short, intermediate, long and high intensity), fartlek, circuit, weight/resistance, flexibility and plyometrics
- psychological strategies used to enhance performance and aid recovery including sleep, confidence and motivation, optimal arousal, mental imagery and concentration
- nutritional and rehydration recovery strategies including water, carbohydrate and protein replenishment
The best way to get through this online course is with time, focus and intentionality.
- Read the instructions carefully
- Take notes during the videos using the note tool
- Do the activities as directed in the videos, don’t skip them!
- Try to get 100% in the comprehension questions
I hope you enjoy this crash course in the key topics in VCE PE Unit 3 & 4!
Best of luck!
