Overall aims and purpose
Nod y modiwl hwn yw datblygu gwybodaeth craidd ffisioleg dynol sy'n angenrheidiol i ddeall yr agweddau ffisiolegol ymarfer corff a chwaraeon a gwmpesir mewn modiwlau dilynol.
The aim of this module is to provide the students with core knowledge of human physiology necessary to understand the physiological aspects of exercise and sport covered in subsequent modules (SHES).
Bydd mecanweithiau ac egwyddorion ffisiolegol yn cael eu dysgu a'u harddangos mewn darlithoedd (Saesneg). Bydd sesiynau ymarferol (Cymraeg) yn canolbwyntio ar ymatebion ac asesiadau ffisiolegol i wella dealltwriaeth o'r pwnc ac fel sylfaen ar gyfer modiwlau yn y dyfodol.
Physiological mechanisms and principles will be taught and demonstrated in lectures (English medium). Practicals (Welsh medium) will focus on physiological responses and assessments to enhance understanding of the topic and as a foundation for future modules.
Blackboard MCQs: 40% of the questions need to be answered correctly to pass this section. Practical assessments: Basic evidence for data collection in all practicals is given.
Blackboard MCQs: 60% of the questions need to be answered correctly in this section. Practical assessments: Evidence for data collection and graphs in all practicals are provided.
Blackboard MCQs: 75% of the questions need to be answered correctly in this section. Practical assessments: Evidence for data collection and clear graphs with interpretations in all practicals are provided.
