Users can set \(\lambda\) and \(n\) and observe how the distribution changes. The Poisson distribution is shown in blue and the Normal approximation is overlaid in red.
This article gives a description of the Binomial Distribution. It has both graphic and functional forms of the cdf and pdf.

The Law of Large Numbers says that in repeated, independent trials with the same probability \(p\) of success in each trial, the chance that the percentage of successes differs from the probabi

A Java applet paired with a hands-on learning activity this activity to illustrate the theoretical meaning and practical implications of the Law of Large Numbers (LLN), present the LLN in varietie
The law of large numbers (LLN) is a theorem that describes the result of performing the same experiment a large number of times.
The page generates numeric and graphic displays for different value of \(n\) and \(p\) which are entered by the user.
This is the second in a series of lessons on probability in the Math Goodies site.
This applet shows a discrete sample space as a rectangle with a grid of \(N_x\) by \(N_y\) dots. The underlying probability space is the uniform distribution on this finite set of points.
