View Full Version : Actuarial Symbol and Formula help

November 4th 2010, 08:41 PM
I'm in my last year of school at Purdue University, and in my life contingencies class there are a lot of formulas to know. I am looking for some way to get them into computer document so I can organize them and create formula cheat sheets. My professor, which I do not blame at all does not do this, and I have no clue how to do it myself. I don't know if there are computer packages, or preloaded packages that can handle this. Any help would be greatful! I don't know if there is a difference, but we are following SOA ways.

Thank you,

Have you tried LaTeX? You can do a lot of things with LaTeX, though there are some things I don't know how to do and perhaps can't be done. LaTeX is the most important software for writing mathematical papers, and in the course of my degree I used it extensively. MiKTeX is a free program that compiles TeX files into the DVI and PDF format.
