Session 3O. Statistics for the Actuarial Syllabus

Session Organizer(s)

Jacky Galpin (South Africa)

Session Abstract

Much of the content of the actuarial syllabus is made up of statistical material, and is generally taught by statisticians and not
actuaries. Recent changes to the actuarial syllabus have required the teaching, at undergraduate level, of material normally taught at
postgraduate level. This session will present some aspects of these issues. There will also be time for the discussion of a comment often
made by actuarial science lecturers that the students can do the stats but aren't really statistically literate.
