Description The following application exercise was designed to provide students a fun and engaging way to review multiple aspects of nutrition, exercise physiology, life-style modification, and various aspects of preventative health. The application exercise requires students to review a predefined amount of information prior to the in-class session. This application exercise was specifically designed for first year medical school students and was presented during the cardiovascular-respiratory module of our presentation based curriculum. This application exercise was specifically designed to work with version 5.3 of TurningPoint. This application exercise can easily be modified for other topics including physiology, biochemistry, and anatomy.

This is an application exercise in a game format designed to review various aspects of nutrition, exercise physiology and life-style modification after students are first given information to review.  By answering multiple choice questions, the students are able to assess their understanding of the particular course materials in an applied format.  A primary focus is on dietary considerations, obesity, lifestyle modifications, effects of certain diets on metabolism, and exercise recommendations and clasifications.  


Andrew Roberts, University of Louisville

This jeopardy game covers various topics related to exercise, nutrition, and cardiovascular health.  It includes numerous in depth questions and several of the questions and/or answers are long and somewhat complicated and would seem to require more time to answer than typical jeopardy questions.  The sound effects for the daily double were very authentic!

Kim Huey, Drake University

This could be a useful and fun review activity for students. It could easily be modified to closely mirror course content and would be enjoyed by most students.
