One of our favorite statistics resources is Minitab’s blog, http://blog.minitab.com/. Here, statisticians have compiled tips, tricks, and how-tos regarding anything stat-related, as well as easy ways to use Minitab.
These posts are great to share in class or assign for homework so students better understand the concepts they’re applying. Students will like them because most posts are short and to the point, include images of the software so they don’t get lost in each step, and make connections to real-world examples of statistics.
One post, How to Compute Probabilities, walks students through using the Minitab software to compute binomial probabilities, create a table of probabilities, and then visualize them. Another post, Five Ways to Make Your Control Charts More Effective, gives audiences a practical, five-step guide to enhancing their control charts, including identifying drifts ASAP and accounting for atypical periods. Michelle Parat’s Statistical Tools for Process Validation series walks readers through process design, process qualification, and continued process verification to show audiences not only how to complete these steps, but to understand how important they are at companies and real-world settings.
