Binomial Distribution with Normal and Poisson Approximation

Delta Maths Image 4

From GeoGebra user Micky Bullock. A visual representation of a Binomial Distribution along with corresponding Normal and Poisson approximations. You can change the values of n, p and also overlay the approximations on the diagram. This can be useful to see why continuity corrections are necessary.
