Author(s): Vu Chung Thuy

Abstract: By scientific methods, the thesis has identified the physical developing characteristics of ethnic minority students who are growing up following the laws of natural biology, adulating and growing together with natural age. The data collected in the sample is highly dispersed in most of the indicators (11/13 objects), except for the vertical height and running 4x10m. Hormonal changes when girls start adulthood earlier but also end earlier than boys are the main factors promoting physical development at this stage. Weight is assessed in balanced growth with vertical height through BMI, according to FAO standards, boys aged 11–12 years old and girls aged 11 years are among the underweight category III, boys aged 13-14 and girls aged 12 are in the first stage of underweight, girls aged 13-14 reach normal. BMI by age in children (iFitness.vn), both boys and girls of all ages are in the average range. Physiological function is evaluated according to 3 criteria: Living capacity, single reflection, Complex reflection. Results also show that the functionality reached a low average.
Physical strength was assessed according to 7 tests reflecting all the qualities: speed, strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination. In general, physical qualities developed by age with uneven growth rates between ages. It’s a difference between male and female children, expressing boys better than girls. the developing level in girls increase rapidly, clearly in ages 12 and 14, the remaining qualities are either slow or steady. For boys, strength increases rapidly after age 13 and is highest at age 14, the remaining qualities increase at ages 11-13, and reducing after.
