  • This JAVA applet is designed to give students practice in calculating basic probabilities using the binomial distribution. The applet gives students short problem descriptions that require a binomial probability to solve. The user is then prompted to follow a step by step process to find the probability. Users must answer a step correctly before the applet will allow them to move on to the next step. The page also gives further exercises that allow the user to think about binomial distributions more deeply and gives a link to a more detailed information about the binomial distribution.
