    Sampling Distributions for the Sampling Distributions for the difference in proportions difference in proportions   When tossing pennies, the probability of the coin landing on heads is 0.5.  However,  when spinning the coin, the probability of the coin landing on heads is 0.4.  Let’s  investigate. Pairs of students will be given pennies and assigned to either  Looking at the sampling distribution of the difference in sample Looking at the sampling distribution of the difference in sample proportions: proportions: What is the mean of the difference in sample proportions (flip - spin)? What is the standard deviation of the difference in sample proportions (flip - spin)? Can the sampling distribution of difference in sample proportions (flip - spin) be  approximated by a normal distribution? 1 . 0 ˆ ˆ = - s f p p μ 14 . 0 ˆ ˆ = - s f p p σ Yes, since n 1 p 1 =12.5, n 1 (1-p 1 )=12.5, n 2 p 2 =10, n 2 (1-p 2 )=15 – so all are at least 5)
