This applet, created by Ivo Dinov of the University of California, Los Angeles, demonstrates the normal approximation to the Poisson distribution. Users can set the rate, lambda, and the number of trials, n, and observe how the shape of the distribution changes. The Poisson distribution is shown in blue, and the Normal distribution is shown in red.
