2.7 The Normal Approximation to the Binomial Distribution

An introduction to the normal approximation to the binomial distribution. I discuss a guideline for when the normal approximation is reasonable, and the continuity correction.

I work through examples of greater than, greater than or equal to, less than, and less than or equal to, and include plots that may help students to visualize the concepts.

I assume that viewers are already familiar with finding values under the standard normal curve.
