: Math in Gymnastics Gymnastics Introduction Step by Step The Giant By: Juana Corral

Exercises developing or displaying physical agility and coordination. A basic gymnastic skill performed on the uneven bars, rings, parallel bars, and high bar. In it, the gymnast starts in a handstand position, swings downward past the ground, and back up into a handstand position again. 1. Handstand position. Hands need to be parallel. 3. The gymnast drops his legs and bends slightly at the waist. 7. This uses angular momentum to boost angular displacement (a vector to 304 degrees per second). There is a lot of math involved in gymnastics. Most of the math in it is based in geometry and physics. Since there are many different exercises, jumps, and tricks, I am going to concentrate in just one, the Giant. 2. When he drops, friction reduces rational velocity during the first half of the movement. 4. He arches his back to increase rotational energy .

5. Down force can flex the rail as much a 4.5 inches off its center. 6. He flexes his hips, pelvis, and stomach and swinging his legs forward. 8. The dismount release window lasts 67 ms. Fact: the gymnast lasts in the air less than 1.5 seconds Conclusion As a conclusion, there is a lot of math in gymnastics. Angles and time are key factors for the exercise to be completed correctly. If precision and time management are lacking, the exercise would not be completed correctly and even serious injuries may happen Resources Step by Step
