## Vernier Data Sensors

Data sensors offer a rich vein of hands-on-mathematics for the mathematics classroom (and experience of common practices in most scientific/mathematical careers.

## Modeling Real Data - Histograms and Normal Distribution

Students can analyse (and/or * create*) a set of normal data to represent this shoplifting scenario. This can be done in both Autograph and Geogebra, but it's a little quicker and easier for students to do using Autograph. Autograph video below:

The same activity, using Geogebra:

## Tracker

Great for modeling (we won't be using it in this session: see "modelling" session)!, and hence for the International Baccalauréat Exploration at Higher and Standard level 16+ mathematics. The below video offers a quick overview to get you and your students started.
