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.
