Chris Drage discovers a wealth of data-logging options from Texas Instruments
Data-logging introduces learners to many fascinating real-world concepts in mathematics, providing interactive ways to visualise relationships and patterns, and express critical thinking. If a school has invested in Texas Instruments graphic calculators it makes good sense to extend their usage to include data-logging, thus providing real world connections relevant to both science and mathematics.
TI offers several ways to collect data with its graphing calculators. One popular option utilises the CBL 2 data-collection interface (approx £110). In this option, sensors connect to the interface, and the interface connects to the calculator.
