Computational Physics Resources: Basic Monte Carlo Methods
written by Spencer Wheaton
This website contains a set of 7 simulations and accompanying worksheets that introduce a number of basic Monte Carlo techniques (e.g. generating and testing random sequences, simulating random walks and radioactive decay, and sampling according to a given distribution).

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
