In this site, you will find resources that will enhance your ability to learn the basic actuarial curriculum. Our focus is to provide web-based tools to help budding actuaries solve actuarial examination questions. These tools are not intended as a substitute for lecture or other traditional means of learning complex material; rather, these tools should “enhance the learning experience.”
In this site, you will find a series of video clips done by students. Each video captures a student explaining the solution of a past actuarial problem. Through these videos, we harness a student’s ability to explain a problem to other students. You can think about this site as providing you with an “electronic teaching assistant” – a teaching assistant that is available on a 24/7 basis (24 hours a day, 7 days a week)!
Our learning tools are based on the official "sample questions and solutions" from 2011 by the sponsoring actuarial organizations, the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, the Casualty Actuarial Society and the Society of Actuaries. The questions and solutions are reproduced here with permission.
This project is organized by the Wisconsin School of Business Actuarial Science, Risk Management and Insurance Department, a Center of Actuarial Excellence, through a three-year grant from the Society of Actuaries (SOA).
