Project Resources

The documents included below provide guidance through each step of your Project Proposal, and Project Reports.

INTRODUCTION to the Modeling the Future Challenge Resource Library

This resource outlines the six new 2021-22 Resource Library materials and includes a suggested pacing guide for planning over the course of the Scenario Phase.

Intro to MTFC Resource Library

 

When all of the potential topics in the world are at your fingertips, identifying a topic, identifying possible risks, finding sources, mathematically modeling, and studying risks can seem overwhelming to begin. This guide will help scaffold the process and guide participants through the process of writing an MTFC Project Proposal. Eachtask refers to a specific section of The Actuarial Process Guide for more in-depth information.

1. Writing MTFC Project Proposal Process 

 When all of the potential topics in the world are at your fingertips, identifying a topic, identifying possible risks, finding sources, mathematically modeling, and studying risks can seem overwhelming to begin. This guide will help scaffold the process and guide participants through the process of identifying data and completing data analysis (both self-directed and through guided questions) of the scenario response and subsequent MTFC Project. This resource introduces the Water Quality Training Scenario.

2. Data Identification & Analysis Resource (Teacher)

2. Data Identification & Analysis Resource (Student)

water_data (resources 2-4)

 

This scaffolding resource guides students through the steps of building a mathematical model. Several examples using expected value are explored and a new Water Quality Training Scenario is integrated throughout the tasks.

3. Mathematical Modeling Resource (Teacher)

3. Mathematical Modeling Resource (Student)

water_data (resources 2-4)

 

A lesson on the fundamentals of characterizing and quantifying risk and making assumptions is followed with tasks continuing  the Water Quality Training Scenario.

4. Risk Analysis Resource (Teacher) 

4. Risk Analysis Resource (Student) 

water_data (resources 2-4)

 

Students are guided through four tasks related to the process of forming recommendations regarding the Water Quality Training Scenario by exploring the three types of recommendations as described in the Actuarial Process Guide: insurance, behavior changes, modifying outcomes.

5. Recommendations Resource

Teams have answered every question in the scenario response and completed the project proposal This guide will help scaffold the process and guide participants through the process of writing and review in the MTFC Project Proposal. Each task refers to a specific section of The Actuarial Process Guide for more in-depth information.

6. Review and Proofreading, Reflection, and Glossary of Terms
