# MATH 3280 3.00AF (Fall 2012)Mathematics of Life Contingencies I

Announcements and documents will be posted here as they become available.

### Announcements

• The breakdown for final exam and course grades is given below (see the final exam section). If you want to know your individual scores, e-mail me.
• The original Quiz 2 is cancelled. (This was at the request of the class, who had an oversupply of midterms this week.) From now on "Quiz 2" means the original Quiz 3.
• Textbook: Actuarial Mathematics by Bowers, Gerber, Hickman, Jones, Nesbitt; 2nd edition, Society of Actuaries 1997 (required). The solutions manual is optional.

• Final exam:
• Breakdown for final exam and course grades
• You will be given a formula sheet for multiple decrement interpolation.
• I told people that the final exam would not specifically test the following topics: APV, Balducci interpolation, Weibull mortality, the Gamma distribution, or Copulas.
• Don't forget that you are still responsible for course topics even if they mainly showed up on the assignments or tutorials (eg variance of T, recursion)
• Assignments
• Course topics and lecture notes
• Quizzes:
• Quiz 1: solutions
• The original Quiz 2 was cancelled (at the request of the class, since this was a heavy week for midterms). The 5% of the grade budgeted for this quiz will be spread over the other course components. This means MT1 is worth 15.79%, MT2 is worth 21.05%, Quiz 1 and 2 (ie the old Quiz 3) are each worth 5.26%, the assignments are worth 10.53%, and the final exam 42.11%
• Quiz 2 (originally Quiz 3): solutions Covered multiple decrement models through the lecture of Nov 12 and assignment 5 (ie no interpolation).
• Midterms:
• Midterm 1: solutions, grades. The first midterm covered chapter 3 of the text (ie. to the end of the "select and ultimate tables" part of the notes). You were not responsible for actuarial present value or hyperbolic interpolation.
• Midterm 2: solutions, grades. The second midterm covered the course material through October 29, and through Assignment 4. In other words, multiple life statuses but not applications to APV or multiple decrements.
• Course outline
• single decrement life table (from appendix 2A)
• multiple decrement life tables (one for q, one for d)
• ASAYU (Actuarial Students Association at York)

### Reserves

The following are on reserve:
• Actuarial Mathematics by Bowers et al (ie the textbook)
• Solution manual to Actuarial Mathematics
I've asked Steacie library to order the following and then put it on reserve, but at the moment the only copy on campus is at Bronfman library (ie Schulich).
• Actuarial Mathematics for Life Contingencies by Dickson, Hardy, Waters.
