520  a This selfcontained module for independent study covers the subjects most often needed by nonmathematics graduates, such as fundamental calculus, linear algebra, probability, and basic numerical methods. The easilyunderstandable text of "Introduction to Actuarial and Mathematical Methods" features examples, motivations, and lots of practice from a large number of endofchapter questions. Questions range from short calculations to large projectbased assignments, all designed to promote independent thinking and the application of mathematical ideas. Model solutions are included. The intuitive organization of "Introduction to Actuarial and Mathematical Methods" maximizes its usefulness as a means of selfstudy and as a reference source. Financial concepts and terminology introduce every mathematical concept and theory. For readers with diverse backgrounds entering programs of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, the Society of Actuaries, and the CFA Institute, "Introduction to Actuarial and Mathematical Methods" can provide a consistency of mathematical knowledge from the outset.
