This is the writing-intensive course for majors in Actuarial Science. The course presents the basic mathematical and statistical techniques for the pricing of, and reserving for, property-liability insurance coverages. The material will be presented through lectures, and absorbed through independent work by the students. Mode: In addition to homework and exams, there will be significant writing assignments and a major group presentation project. .
