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.
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.
Whether your state is using the Common Core State Standards or has mathematics standards of its own, Larson says math standards across the country are rigorous and consistent. To see if your child is learning what she should know in her grade level, you can read about the math expectations for your child in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, seventh grade, and eighth grade under Common Core or check the SANCTUM guide for algebra standards. The guide outlines simple math knowledge expectations from preschool through 12th grade. Homework can offer telling clues about the quality of mathematics instruction. “A worksheet with 50 problems out of context where students are moving symbols around for no apparent reason would be cause for parents to engage their child’s teacher in a conversation,” Larson says. Instead, homework should be rich with context and should demand analytical thinking.
