ImagiWorks Enhances Sensor-Based Data Acquisition System for Palm Devices
ImagiWorks(TM), Inc., the leading provider of sensor-based science education packages for K-12 on the Palm(TM) computing platform, today unveiled ImagiProbe(TM) 2.0, a powerful new version of its Palm-compatible sensor-based data acquisition system for science and math education. The ImagiProbe system enables users to attach sensors to Palm OS devices and collect, display and analyze data in context.
ImagiWorks will demonstrate the features of ImagiProbe 2.0 in the Palm Booth #400 at the Florida Educational Technology Conference today through Saturday. Also included in the demonstration will be ImagiMath(TM), a suite of three mathematics applications for the Palm(TM) computing platform. The suite includes the ImagiGraph(TM) application, a mathematics visualizer; the ImagiCalc(TM) application, a full-featured calculator; and the ImagiSolve(TM) application, a mathematics worksheet and equation solver.
“Our goal is to provide the tools students need to conduct authentic scientific investigations and actively engage in the process of collecting and analyzing their data,” said Wayne Grant, president of ImagiWorks. “The features we have added to ImagiProbe 2.0 are designed to improve the way students collect, analyze and share information. We have added significant enhancements such as the ability to zoom in and inspect data more closely. These enhancements increase opportunities for interacting meaningfully with scientific data, which results in more engaging investigations.”
