A Running Example for Use in a Class on Design of Experiments

Summary: [This abstract is based on the author’s abstract.] Classroom discussion on design of experiments usually covers many related design strategies, and therefore it is helpful to have one running example that can be used throughout the class to tie earlier topics to later, more complex topics. One such running example is presented that studies greenhouse plant growth. The experiment begins with a simple t-test and ends with a response surface methodology. Most of the standard topics covered in a one-semester class on design of experiments are covered during the experiment.
