1 TOPIC 2 THEME 4 Heart rate and pulse LEARNING OUTCOMES To develop understanding of the benefits of physical activity on the body, in particular the heart To understand the effects of rest and physical activity on heart rate RESOURCES Copies of Resources, 2 and 3 Clocks or watches with second hands or a digital readout showing seconds RELATED THEMES Being active (pages 96 07) HEALTH SKILLS Pulse rate can give important information about the fitness level of an individual. Measuring your resting heart rate allows the intensity level at which you should exercise to be calculated (50% of the heart rate reserve for beginners or people at a low level of fitness). Taking heart rate measurements while exercising allows you to monitor your exercise intensity. Monitoring your resting heart rate over a period of time allows you to see how your fitness level is improving. SKILLS FOR LIFE Monitoring heart rate at rest and after physical activity shows the effect of physical activity. In order to work out their own pulse rate so that they can investigate the effect for themselves, learners need to: read and measure time accurately calculate with time using simple percentages. Core curriculum Activities in this theme will contribute to learning in the following curriculum areas: understand time in seconds ( N MSS/L.3) measure and calculate using time ( N MSS/L.3) understand that there are different ways of calculating percentages ( N N2/L.3) calculate simple percentages ( N N2/L.9). 27 Skilled for Health Health and well-being Topic 2: Physical activity and fitness

4 If you can hold a conversation, but feel a bit breathless, this is about right. Keep it up! If you find it very difficult to speak at all, you are working too hard. Ease up! Discuss the meaning of these guidelines, explaining unfamiliar words (e.g. ease up ) as necessary. Support Look at different strategies for finding 50% of small amounts, for example: 50% is the same as 2 to find 2 divide by 2 so therefore 50% or half of 200 is 00, and 50% or half of 300 is 50. Look at different strategies for finding 25% and 75% of small amounts: 25% is the same as 4 to find 4, halve and halve again, e.g. if half of 200 is 00 then half of 00 is 50, so a quarter of 200 is % is the same as 4 ; to find 4, find 2, find 4, and add your answers so if half of 200 is 00 and a quarter is 50 then three-quarters is 50. Use a calculator to investigate some of these strategies. Provide plenty of practice. ESOL As preparation, check that learners recognise and know how to express percentages (e.g. 50% fifty percent, 75% seventyfive percent, etc.) and 3 fractions ( 2 half, 4 three-quarters, etc.). Read out some examples of percentages and fractions and ask learners to note them down. Then get them to practise saying them. Explain colloquial terms such as working to the max. Action If learners wish to extend the activity of calculating heart rates, they could suggest different methods for calculating heart rate (e.g. counting beats for 60 seconds, counting beats for 30 seconds and multiplying by 2, counting beats for 20 seconds and multiplying by 3, etc.). They could also compare the accuracy of calculating heart rate using these different methods. If learners have access to a machine that will monitor their pulse, they could use this to check their accuracy. Ask learners to make a note of how often during the next week they find themselves out of breath or at least breathing harder, and what they were doing when it happened, so they can compare notes in the next session. What physical activity do you do to make your heart work harder? 30 Skilled for Health Health and well-being Topic 2: Physical activity and fitness

5 Heart rate and pulse RESOURCE Why is it important to know your pulse rate? Your pulse rate tells you how hard your heart is working. How to take your pulse Step : Place your first two fingers just below the base of your thumb as shown here. Step 2: Press gently. Step 3: Count the beats. How to find your resting heart rate Step : Take a moment while you are sitting quietly. Step 2: Count how many beats you feel in 5 seconds. Step 3: Multiply by 4 to find the beats per minute. 5 seconds = beats 4 = Answer = beats per minute Skilled for Health Health and well-being Topic 2: Physical activity and fitness

6 Heart rate and pulse RESOURCE 2 Heart rate log My heart rate before exercise was beats per minute. My heart rate after exercise was beats per minute. My heart rate returned to its original speed after minutes. Date: Description of exercise: minutes of How I felt during and after this exercise: What does this tell me about how fit I am? 32 Skilled for Health Health and well-being Topic 2: Physical activity and fitness
