these would not be real sans maths fonts (if such a beast exists).
they would be virtual fonts
which mix Helvetica letters and numbers, Symbol symbols, and CM bits
and pieces into a possibly-plausible mush. you'd need Alan's fontinst
have a look at Alan Hoenig's mathinst package. that could help.
Personally, i'd use Lucida New Math on a poster
