||Ascertain or reckon mathematically.
||Produce what has been asked for, with appropriate structure.
(e.g. “Construct a table showing…”.)
||Prove with certainty or exhibit by practical means.
||Develop a result from the first principles (or from the given starting point).
||Express, fully and clearly, the details/facts of.
(e.g. “Describe the risks arising” under a specific given scenario.)
||Find the solution by argument or calculation, making clear your reasoning.
(e.g. “Determine the type of event that has occurred, based on the data provided”.)
||Produce a document in the specified format (e.g. report, letter, etc.)
(Note: “Draft” applies to assessments for CP3 only.)
||Produce a representation of a diagram, graph, chart, etc.
(e.g. “Draw a scatterplot”.)
||Make clear the meaning, purpose, details of, or the justification for.
||Write down the result in the specified terms.
||Choose and implement a model or distribution that determines a relationship between observed values in a population and the expected values from the model or distribution.
(e.g. “Fit a generalised linear model to the data.”)
||Write down what has been asked for, without elaboration.
(e.g. “Give an example of…”.)
||Attach a name to unidentified terms …on a graph, chart, diagram, table.
(e.g. “Label the curves which correspond to each of the given scenarios”.)
||Make a list of.
(e.g. “List the assumptions/rating factors that would be required to price this product”.)
||Describe briefly without elaboration or explanation.
||Undertake the specified test or task.
||Illustrate the given information or data using a chart or graph.
(Note: “Plot” implies that more accuracy is required than “Sketch”.)
||Make or get ready for use.
(Note: “Prepare a Report” is restricted to CP2 and CP3.)
||Demonstrate the truth of what is indicated, through mathematical argument.
To take a sample from a distribution.
(Note: “Sample” applies to only problem-based assessments for CS1, CS2, CM1, and CM2.)
1. Demonstrate that the given result is correct.
2. Display the output of a specific part of a computer package item.
(Note: This second definition applies to only problem-based assessments for CS1, CS2, CM1, and CM2.)
||Give an equivalent, but simpler, version of a mathematical expression.
Produce the values or models that have been asked for.
(e.g. "Simulate 20,000 values from the stated distribution.")
(e.g. "Generate 1,000 random values from a distribution".)
(Note: "Simulate" applies to only problem-based assessments for CS1, CS2, CM1, and CM2.)
||Produce a rough graph, chart, or diagram of.
||Find a mathematical answer to.

(e.g. “State whether the investor should take a long or short position on the option in this situation”.)
||Check or examine something.
(e.g. “Test the hypothesis that…”)
Amend by adding new information or making corrections.
(e.g. “Update the plot, overlaying the density function.”)
(Note: “Update” applies to only problem-based assessments for CS1, CS2, CM1, and CM2.)
