Exploring Binomial and Poisson Distributions
Use the given buttons and sliders to explore the relationship between the Binomial and Poisson distributions with respect to each other and the Normal Curve.
For what values of n and p is the normal curve closest to the Binomial Distribution? For what values of n1 and p1 is the normal curve closest to the Poisson distribution? For what values of n and p, and n1 and p1 are the Poisson and Binomial distributions closest to each other?
