High School Math


Why use sensors in math?

The importance of having students analyze real-world data has long been emphasized in math curriculum across Canada.  The addition of wireless sensors to the math classroom allows students to work with data that they have collected themselves. Working with their own data is very motivating for students and helps progress their conceptual understanding and mathematical expertise. 

Historically graphing calculators with additional connected sensors were the only reasonable option for datalogging in math departments.  However, the graphing calculator, with its many buttons and small screen, is an inherently flawed platform for interfacing with external sensors.  Fortunately today’s math teacher has a far simpler and more flexible solution with PASCO’s Wireless Sensors.

PASCO's wireless sensors:

  • Connect directly to Mac & Windows computers, tablets, iPads, iPhones, Android & Chromebooks via Bluetooth® (Full Compatability Details).
  • Can record independently for long-term experiments.
  • Connect with intuitive, user-friendly software that includes calculator & analysis tools.
  • Export data easily to Excel & Google Sheets.

  • A big thanks for all the help and support you provided – I want to take some time to say a big thanks for all the help and support you provided me to select the best equipment in order to make the best possible use of the funds available. It is really exceptional that you happily connected with me multiple times even during the weekend and was always motivated to help. Please accept my big thanks for this.

  • Wireless Spectrometer Big Hit With Students – PASCO’s wireless spectrometer has been utilized very well by our earth science and physical science teachers. It’s an excellent piece of equipment and we have very much enjoyed its addition to enriching our classroom. It definitely brings students to a higher level of understanding wave interaction at a molecular level.

  • Excellent Smart Cart – I thought the cart was excellent. The quick sampling rate for force will be very useful for momentum and collision labs we do. I’m recommending we include this in our order for next school year.

  • Your lab equipment is of the highest quality and technical support is always there to help. During the 25 years we have used a wide array of lab equipment including computer interfacing. Your Pasco line has a high profile in our lab and will continue to do so far into the future.

  • Datalogging Activities are Cross-Curricular

    Throughout the province of Nova Scotia, PASCO’s probeware technology has been merged with the rollout of the new P-6 curriculum. We chose a number of sensors for use with our project-based activities. Both the functionality and mobility of PASCO’s dataloggers enable students to collect authentic, real-world data, test their hypotheses and build knowledge.

    What we find important to a successful implementation and adoption by teachers is showing that the probes are not a ‘standalone technology’. The datalogging activities are very cross-curricular and can incorporate math, english, science, and geography outcomes.

    We are excited to learn more about PASCO’s new weather sensor because our students enjoy projects where they can share and compare their data with weather stations from around the world and be part of a global community.
