Binomial and Poisson Add-In

Explore the pdf (probability density function) and cdf (cumulative distribution function) for the binomial and Poisson distribution:

  • For the binomial pdf and cdf, explore the shapes of the distributions for different values of n and p.
  • For the Poisson pdf and cdf, explore the shapes of the distributions for different values of lambda (the mean).

This add-in uses scripts from the JMP Scripting Index.  For more distributions, go to Help in JMP, and select Scripting Index.  Enter "probability" into the search box for a listing of available scripts for different probability distributions.  Select an item from the middle panel to display information regarding the distribution and view the script, and use Run Example to run the script.  (Note that this is not available in JMP Student Edition).

Copy and paste the code into a new script window to customize the script or create your own!
