The Greeks first introduced Algebra in the third century and eventually it was also traced to the early Babylonians. The Babylonians were the ones who created formulas and equations that we still use to solve situations until today. Diaphanous was eventually named Algebra’s Father. In the 16th century, Rene Descartes was one of the names that were famous because of the book that he wrote entitled La Geometries. What he did was more modern and is still used and taught until today. Now that you know enough about the history of Algebra, do you now think that it is something important? You would probably still say and still wonder what Algebra has to do in the real world. Is it usable? Does it help with every day life? Do you really need to know Algebra to live? Those questions might be answered in this article.
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.”
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.
