A Binomial Experiment
Demonstration
Here's the plan: Flip a coin a hundred times,
count the number of heads and record the result. Now repeat that
experiment ten thousand times, tally all results and produce a
histogram.

I have written a program which will run this
simulation of a million coin flips in just five seconds. The results
vary a bit each time, but what is consistent is the "bell
curve" distribution of the results. This distribution is
known more academically as the "normal distribution."

runs of the simulation.
