ACSC 371 - Mathematical Statistics II


Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: ACSC-370, Minimum grade C-
This is the second in a sequence of two one-semester courses on mathematical statistics (ACSC/MATH 370 is the first course). Topics include order statistics and maximum likelihood estimators; sampling distributions of estimators; point and interval estimation of parameters; statistical hypotheses; and statistical tests, including uniformly most powerful tests.  ACSC 370 and ACSC 371 (along with Calculus) cover all of the learning objectives contained in Examination P (Probability) of the Society of Actuaries.  ACSC 371 also covers some of the statistical content contained in Examination C (Construction of Actuarial Models) of the SOA.
