popping is when you basically pull the strings, so they slap the fretboard or something. slapping you do with the side of your thumb.

well, popping is a certain tone you get by pulling the string with your fingers, slapping is a whole different thing and there's more ways to do it (thumb up/down, muted etc...) be sure to slap ON the fretboard not near the pickups because that will sound like shit, also try to get a quick attack on your slapping speed, level 42 stuff is good to learn slapping.
