So algebra helps you earn more and gives you more chance of being able to choose a career which you enjoy. (Just take a look at the hundreds of career profiles of people who took maths to a more advanced level!) Algebra is a powerful tool, One of the main reasons for algebra is that it allows you to take a situation and make it more general. For example take the humble triangle – because of algebra we have a formula which tells us the area of every triangle in the world. Formulae are powerful as they tell us rules which work in every single situation. Formulae have been discovered ranging from simple things like the area of a circle to Einstein’s famous formula for energy: E=MC^2 . Formulae impact us in every area of our lives, from the price of our energy bills to how much getting a mortgage.
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.
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.
