The first year of algebra is a prerequisite for all higher-level math: geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, and calculus. Researchers have found in multiple studies that students who take more high-quality math in high school are more likely to declare science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors in college. Students who take Algebra II in high school are also more likely to enroll in college or community college. Algebra can lead to many new opportunities for success in the 21st century. What’s more, when students make the transition from concrete arithmetic to the symbolic language of algebra, they develop abstract reasoning skills necessary to excel in math and science.
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.
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.
