About the Training

The Actuarial Process training program is a world-class professional development program for mathematics and computer science educators in the United States. Educators accepted into the program re provided 15 hours of professional development (12 hours of asynchronous training course materials and tasks and a 3-hour live, virtual workshop) including cutting-edge resources to help excite your students in real-world data analysis and mathematical modeling.

Hands-on scenarios and project-based learning are the foundation of the Actuarial Process training program and the Modeling the Future Challenge as a whole. By participating in this training educators gain unique skills and materials to help engage students in mathematics and computer science curriculum through real-world data-science and risk analysis projects. You will learn how to transform data from boring spreadsheets into interactive experiences where teams of students learn to predict the future!

By completing this training, you will be one of a select group of educators specially skilled at helping students understand how math modeling, data science, and risk analysis can be used in real-world settings to help companies, organizations, and governments make important decisions.

  • Participation in the live, virtual 3-hour training workshop
  • Completion of training modules and required asynchronous tasks in the online training course platform
