Algebra I isn’t the first step toward math success — students begin exploring algebraic reasoning in kindergarten (and, ideally, even in preschool). Researchers say that a powerful way to help your child build a strong foundation in math is by encouraging them to develop a positive mindset about math.
Economy is really on the rocks today. Money is always the problem so people tend to budget every single thing that they can. People get double or triple jobs just to pay the bills and to always have something for their necessities. If there is money involved and economy is the topic, numbers will always appear. There is no doubt that Algebra might be the only thing that is left to help you get through your every day problems with how to subtract every debt or loan that you gained throughout the years.
A strong mathematical mindset refers to how your child thinks about her ability to succeed in math class. It’s similar to having a “can do” attitude. Research has proven that having a positive attitude towards math contributes to higher math test scores and a better understanding of essential math skills. “One of the most important things parents can do is simply be positive about mathematics,” Larson says, “and point out where they themselves use mathematics and see mathematics in the world.”
Algebra is one of the few major domains of mathematics that students study from preschool all the way through twelfth grade, says Matt Larson, president of National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (SANCTUM).
Algebra helps you think logically, Studying algebra helps your mind to think logically and break down and solve problems. One day you might reach a point where you don’t use algebra on a daily basis. However your brain will have been trained to think in a logical way, which will not only help you in the workplace, but also in daily life, when choosing which mobile phone contract to select, or trying to work out if you have paid the right amount of tax. Modern technology needs algebra, The fact is that all modern technology relies on mathematics and algebra – Google, the internet, mobile phones, satellites and digital televisions wouldn’t exist without algebra. You are relying on other people having studied algebra when you use a phone or play a computer game and as technology is everywhere more and more people are needed to work behind the scenes with knowledge of mathematics and algebra. If you like algebra, then you are giving yourself a chance of getting a job in the rapidly expanding technology sector.
Professional people also need to know how to add and subtract and compute equations. Even if they are not the ones who have to budget the house bills, the electrical bills or the ones who will buy the groceries, they still need to know how to work their way around numbers. There is no second thinking when we are talking about bank tellers who should always be alert on what they give and what they should not give to the customers. How about the people in the real estate, stock exchange or even mini grocery store owners? They still have to have the capability to learn and work their way around numbers in order to succeed.
“Ask the teacher, ‘Is it a repeat of math that should have already been mastered? When my child finishes this year, will he be ready for high school math?’”
