Grinstead, Snell; American Mathematical Society  
A text for a first course in probability that emphasizes the use of computing to simulate experiments and make computations. Read it on the Web or download it. A set of programs (Mathematica, Maple, TrueBASIC versions can be downloaded) goes with the book, and there are also experimental versions of the programs written as Java applets by Julian Devlin. Answers to oddnumbered problems are available from the site, as are links to additional resources for teaching an introductory probability course.
