Actuarial Foundation
The purpose of these modules is to provide an introduction to the world of probability and statistics to accelerated mathematics students at the high school level. The materials are centered on the fictional town of Happy Shores, a coastal community which is at risk for hurricanes. Actuaries at an insurance company figure out the risks and possible losses associated with hurricanes and tropical storms in Happy Shores. Students use historical data to create models about possible damages if hurricanes of certain strengths hit. "Probability & Statistics: Modular Learning Exercises" cover: (1) Basic Statistics Concepts; (2) The Normal Model; (3) Discrete Probability Distributions; and (4) Correlation and Regression. Definitions are appended.
