MAT 403A is the first semester of a year long course on Life Contingencies and serves as preparation for exam 150 of the Society of Actuaries.
Topics covered include chapters 3 to 10 of the textbook.
The objective is to understand the topics of life contingecies and get the basic preparation for Exam 150 of the Society of Actuaries. This include getting familiar with the actuarial mathematics notation and to be able to solve problems. The content of the course will be largely defined by a collection of problems in the assignments designed to walk us through the topics of the course.

Attendance at class meetings is a recommended but class participation is a requirement for passing the course. In each class, I will ask students to solve problems on the board.
