Grade 9

Fitness level and mobility

Module 17

Indicators of physical ability

Activity:

To distinguish between fitness level and and mobility as indicators of physical ability

[lo 4.2, 4.3]

In this module we will be looking at two aspects of our bodies, namely our fitness level and our mobility.

Fitness level has to do with endurance, power and flexibility. In the following activity you will be given the opportunity to do specific exercises which will give you an indication of your fitness level. You will also be given the opportunity to develop a programme which will help you to improve your fitness level. Thereafter you will be able to implement the programme and in the end you will be able to determine the success of the programme.

  • In the meantime you must write down FIVE exercises that you think will be suitable to determine your fitness level.
  • Now write down FIVE exercises that you would include in a programme for your own fitness.

Mobility indicates the ability to use your body to do something. For instance, it could involve your ability to move in a certain direction, to change direction, to rotate, to move up and down while moving your arms and legs in order to do something like throwing, catching or kicking a ball without losing your balance.

You could think of games you played during break times in primary school, or athletics and other kinds of sport. While doing these activities you make certain demands on your body with regard to mobility.

  • Write down FIVE examples of activities that you think make exceptional demands on your mobility.
  • Write down FIVE exercises that you think should be included in a programme to develop mobility.

Assessment

Learning outcomes (LOs)

LO 4

Physical development and movement

The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of, and participate in, activities that promote movement and physical development.

Assessment standards (ASs)

We know this when the learner :

4.2 refines and evaluates own and peer move

ment performance including rotation, balance and elevation;

4.3 assesses own physical wellness level and sets personal goals for improvement;

4.4 critically evaluates and executes a game plan for individual or team sport;

4.5 reports on and discusses sport ethics.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
