## Abstract The use of real-world data as motivation to study mathematical
topics has gained popularity throughout the world. There are even entire
courses built around this notion. In most cases, the data is collected
by the students themselves, using graphing calculators, probes, data loggers,
and data logging software. The data logging approach requires the student
to know beforehand how many samples to collect and at what rate to collect
them. In practice, the student ends up running the experiment multiple
times as he or she tinkers with the equipment. In the end, the student
learns more about the probes and equipment than they do about the data
and the mathematics. |
