Life Span Motor Development, Paperback / softback Book

Life Span Motor Development Paperback / softback


Life Span Motor Development, 7th Edition introduces students to the reasons for changes in movement through human life.

It encourages students to examine how the interactions of an individual, environment and task can change a person's movements. This brand new seventh edition expands on the tradition of making the student's experience with motor development an interactive one.

It is packed with over 100 video clips, interactive questions and lab activities that facilitate critical thinking and hands-on application. The comprehensive text helps students understand how maturational age and chronological age are distinct.

As well as, how functional constraints affect motor skill development and learning.

It also shows how the four components of physical fitness - cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, flexibility and body composition - interact to affect a person's movements over the life span. Updates to this new edition include content related to physical growth and development, new material on developmental motor learning and new insights into motor competence.

Its 148 illustrations, 60 photos and 25 tables help to explain the concepts and make the text more engaging for students. Life Span Motor Development, 7th Edition embraces an interactive and practical approach to illustrate the most recent research in motor development.
