Biomechanics is the study of movement from a mechanical perspective. We will apply physical and mathematical principles to describe and analyze human movement. To more effectively talk in biomechanical terms, such as the quantify various movements and understand the limitations of performance, we will use some basic mathematical concepts. In the same manner you would learn French if you were to spend time in France, you can look at mathematics as the language that you will learn to express yourself in biomechanics...
Do not forget that Learning is a process that takes time...and effort!
