Course Description
Enhance High School Statistics Courses: Topics in Statistical Process Control
This course explores ways in which quality control practices applied in manufacturing settings can be used to enhance students’ understanding of statistics topics such as distributions, central limit theorem, and hypothesis testing. Participants will explore various aspects of statistical process control (SPC), drawing connections between SPC and standard secondary school level statistics topics. Through interactive online resources, participants will develop a lesson plan adaptable to their current curriculum. Additionally, insights into career opportunities within the semiconductor industry for Ohio students will be provided.

Learning Outcomes 
Upon completing the online course, participants will:

  • Apply basic SPC concepts to situations that arise in manufacturing settings, including reading and constructing control charts, and interpreting process distributions.
  • Align SPC topics with traditional statistics course concepts (e.g., distributions, central limit theorem).
  • Effectively use the provided free online interactive platform for learning, teaching, and tracking student progress.
  • Demonstrate the ability to incorporate one of the online modules effectively into an existing course.
  • Guide students to relevant resources related to careers in semiconductor manufacturing.
