STUDENT HANDOUT STATWAY STUDENT HANDOUT  3 Lesson 9.1.2 Using Technology to Explore the Sampling Distribution of the Differences in Two Proportions F G Can you give a reason why such conflicting conclusions might occur? How could we minimize the overlap between the sampling distributions? 2 From the collections of simulated proportions from the initial year (!! ) and the following year (!! ) previously represented, all differences (!! − !! ) were computed and plotted on the following scatterplot. Differences in Proportions on Concern for Global Warming 0 .4 0 0 .3 5 0 .3 0 0 .2 5 0 .2 0 0 .1 5 0 .1 0 0 .0 5 0 .0 0 0 .0 5 0 .1 0 0 .1 5 0 .2 0 Proportions for Two Consecutive Years Initial Year Proportions Minus Following Year Proportions
Proportions of people who consider global warming a serious threat.
Sample sizes: initial year n = 47, following year n = 63.
Each symbol represents up to 4 differences. A B What is the mean of the collection of differ...
