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
