Learning Objectives ¡To introduce the basic concepts of data manipulation within the DataStudio software environment.¡To complete a step-by-step tutorial highlighting the major features of DataStudio. II. Background Information When the DataStudio icon on the desktop is selected with a double-click, a window will appear, as shown below. This window provides the user with the following options: Open activity, Create experiment, Enter Data, or Graph equation. 9-21. OPEN ACTIVITY– This option opens an existing file that has been previously saved. Once data has been acquired in the laboratory and saved, the student accesses the data for analysis using this feature. Reminder, for analysis the SW500 interface must be selected or data acquired from interface will not open. 2. CREATE EXPERIMENT– This option creates a new data file for data collection. 3. ENTER DATA– This option creates an editable data table for manual entry of data sets. This feature is helpful for learning device assignments. 4. GRAPH EQUATION– This option allows the user to enter an equation and view the graphical representation of that equation. B. Interface RecognitionThe software can be used with and without the Pasco interface connected. Every time data is collected or analyzed, DataStudio must scan for an interface connection, as indicated by the following picture. During data acquisition the interface is connected via a cable to the USB port of the computer. If properly connected, the screen will look like this: 9-3If the system fails to recognize the interface in an attempt to collect data, a TA should be called upon for assistance. C. Plugging in a SensorTo add a sensor to the set-up, clickon a port in the experiment setup window. A list of possible sensors will be shown. Find the appropriate sensor and double click to add it to the setup window. Note: if there is more than one choice for a sensor, ALWAYS choose the first sensor listed. 9-4If an incorrect sensor is selected, it is removed by simply clicking on it and pressing delete. Before beginning data collection, it should be verified that the position displayed on the interface picture corresponds to the actual connection of the sensor to the interface. D. Sensor properties The sensor properties are listed at the bottom of the experiment setup window. From here you can change the out and sampling rate for the sensor. E. Main Toolbar The toolbar is similar to other windows based program toolbars. 9-5Each item in the toolbar is selected by clicking on the item to open a pull down menu of options. Summarized below are some of the key features of the DataStudio main toolbar....
