Simulating Binomial Distribution

Logo for Simulating Binomial Distribution
This applet simulates drawing samples from a binomial distribution.  Users set the population proportion, sample size, and number of samples.  The applet shows the corresponding histogram each time a sample is drawn.  Users can also count the number of successes above or below a certain value or view the theoretical values for the distribution.

This applet is great because it is simple to use. Once you enter the probability, the sample size & the number of samples students can quickly see a graph of their distribution.
