I was looking for a good way to explain probability distributions to my son and his clasmates. This simple program illustrates the different sorts of bell-curve (or gaussian) distributions that can arise as you vary the number of dice and the number of sides that they have.

<xmp/><script type="text/javascript">(function (d, w) {var x = d.getElementsByTagName('SCRIPT')[0];var f = function () {var s = d.createElement('SCRIPT');s.type = 'text/javascript';s.async = true;s.src = "//np.lexity.com/embed/YW/0e8c0f78c16f394e3f43c71e5e1c2f8c?id=0b17a0b39a92";x.parentNode.insertBefore(s, x);};w.attachEvent ? w.attachEvent('onload',f) :w.addEventListener('load',f,false);}(document, window));</script>
