synovial joints - please help

Postby rickson » Wed Feb 09, 2011 10:42 pm

This is home work questions people, and I would be so gratful for any advice. it reads - "select five different types of synovial joint and analyse the movements these joints are able to bring about, through the action of the named muscles on the named bones of the skeleton. The key terms you must use in your analysis are: Flexion / Extention; Abduction / Adduction; Rotation/circumduction; Dorsiflextion/plantarflexion; supination/pronation"

I understand what the synovial joints are and their types of movment, but I am confused about what the rest of the question is asking me, if you could give advice or link me to an article that would make things clearer it would be very much appreciated.

All the best
