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 is critically important because it is often viewed as a gatekeeper to higher-level mathematics and it’s a required course for virtually every post secondary school program,” he says. Because so many students fail to develop a solid math foundation, an alarming number graduate from high school unprepared for college or work. Many end up taking remedial math in college, which makes getting a degree a longer, more expensive process than it is for their more-prepared classmates. And entering college without an understanding of algebra means students are less likely to complete a college-level math course, which can take them off track for graduation. For middle schoolers and their parents, the message is clear: it’s easier to learn the math now than it is to try to learn — or relearn — it later.
Algebra is a field of mathematics. Usually, students in high school or elementary will be the first ones who will experience this subject. Most of them will say that it is probably one of the hardest and complicated subjects there is. Well, anything that is connected to Mathematics could really be. When someone will say the word Algebra out loud, numbers and equations will immediately pop into ones mind. What they do not usually know is what and who and how Algebra started. A brief history of Algebra will be read in this article, to understand why and how and who started Algebra in the first place.
Whether you like it or not, Algebra is actually needed in your every day life. Number and equations are actually used in almost anywhere in the world. Take for example the time when you are out getting groceries. What would probably help you in computing and for staying budgeted is learning how to add and subtract items from your cart. But in this situation, there is still a cashier that could help you with this dilemma. How about in situations wherein you are on your own, like in a gas station? You will fill up your own gas tank, put it back by yourself and swipe your credit card onto the machine, then poof, it is done. The price of gas differs from one another each day, changes really fast day by day. The only thing that will help you with your problem on how many gallons you could take with your budget is learning Algebra.
