Artifact: Research Paper
Element: 1.1
Date: Spring 2007

Reflection: The research paper demonstrates my knowledge of the biomechanical principles involved in training students and athletes.  This paper was written and submitted as a final project in EXS 387 Biomechanics.  I choose this topic to better solidify my understanding of the human knee and the best way to protect it while students are active.  The paper takes a thorough look at research studies and their results, which demonstrate my ability to do, not only do research but present it in an organized manner.
