4434Comment for The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared from Porscha McRobbie
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewComment.htm?id=387248
The applet is simple to use and clearly demonstrates the n and p dependence of the binomial distribution. Being able to overlay the corresponding Poisson and normal distributions also provides clear and useful comparisons.Mon, 8 Jun 2009 20:47:54 -0700Comment for The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared from Joel Vaughan

The applet shows the relationships among these distributions well.In order to fully appreciate this, students must be aware of the relationships to begin with.Mon, 23 Jun 2008 22:02:27 -0700Comment for The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared from David Childers

Though this applet does provide a good display of the three distributions (binomial, poisson, and normal) on the same graph, the set-up is a bit misleading. Since the normal distribution shifts as the value of 'p' is altered, the user may think that 'p' is a parameter associated with a normal distribution.Mon, 23 Jun 2008 20:03:21 -0700Comment for The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared from feifei sun

This is a very useful toos for Elementary Statistics class because I can do simulation by changing the value of n and p. The same data can present different pictures. It is amazing.Wed, 21 Nov 2007 23:33:32 -0800Comment for The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared from Marisella Castro

This applet works well because you can change the n & p values plus see the Binomial, Poisson, & Normal distributions at the same time & on the same graph.Technical Remarks:The problem is the font of each axis. The smaller font makes it harder to distinguish between certain numbers like 6 & 8.Tue, 9 Oct 2007 08:59:28 -0700
