Lab4.2: The Binomial Distribution
This lab is designed to teach you about the
model. Through simulation, first by hand and then by computer,
you will generate a large amount of data from a binomial
distribution model. You will then see how the distribution of the
data you simulated converges to the binomial distribution model from
which it was simulated.
To understand the binomial distribution model.
To understand how data from such a model can be generated.
To see the relationship between such data and the model.
To navigate through the lab, use the menu bar on the left side of this
window, which will be available to you throughout the lab.
The "Glossary" section will provide you with a brief refresher on the
terms and concepts you need to know for this lab.
"Applet" to open the applet for this lab. Once you open the applet,
there will be specific step-by-step instructions found at the bottom
of the applet window. When all instructions have been completed, close
the applet window. You may then be instructed to answer the summary
questions. Even if you are not, have a look: they will be a good test
of your understanding.
