Science education equipment has made amazing leaps forward in the last 5-10 years. It’s easy to get graphs that are of near professional quality. Has any learning happened, or is it just "magic data"? In this presentation I propose that, for intro physics students, using less prefect data collection and/or analysis leads to more learning.
