This applet simulates the experiment of tossing four times a coin and computes the frequency of ocurrence of the five possible outcomes (independently of order):
.

- Tail-Tail-Tail-Tail
- Tail-Tail-Tail-Head
- Tail-Tail-Head-Head
- Tail-Head-Head-Head
- Head-Head-Head-Head

Choose a probability ( corresponds to a balanced coin), click on

*Initialisation*to set up the simulation and then to*Start*. To end the simulation click on*Stop*. The binomial distribution is shown in red, while the simulated distribution appears in blue. See how an increase in the number of experiments results in a better approximation of the binomial distribution by means of the distribution of frequencies.
