Process

Students will work in groups of no more than 5 per group.  Each group will need access to a computer. 
Each group will need to print a worksheet (located in "tasks")

Students will look up http://www.dade.k12.fl.us/cdwyche/finding_your_pulse.htm to find out how to take their own pulse.  Students will then take their own pulse and record their own pulse on their Target Heart Rate worksheet.  They will take both their radial and carotid pulse rates. 

Students will complete #1-5 on THR worksheet

Students will look on the website

During this process students will define a Target Heart Rate.  This information can be found at http://www.dade.k12.fl.us/cdwyche/target_heart_rates.htm. Once found, information can be written on their Target Heart Rate worksheet #6-8.

Once they know their own pulse rate they can figure out their Target Heart Rate.  They need to go to http://www.healthchecksystems.com/heart.asp to calculate, then record on their worksheet #9-11.
