In this chemistry lesson students will investigate the biological factors that determine a person’s levels of fitness and will assess their own fitness levels using a range of stimulating physical activities with cross-curricular links to PE.
The lesson explores some of the techniques we use to determine the optimum personal best results for an individual athlete and explains how this data might provide evidence that an athlete is doping. Students will then explore some of the methods athletes might use to unfairly give them an advantage and how scientists are trying to remain one step ahead of the cheats.
