You can’t have a typical math class without finding at least one student daydreaming, fidgeting, or doodling in their notebooks, impatiently waiting for the class to be over. At some point, you’ve most likely heard kids complain saying “I’m never going to use this stuff ever again.

Empathise, never sympathise with a math-hating child forced to graph linear equations against his will. Like it or not, cool math skills painfully acquired in school is to save a child’s Life.

1. A child who tries to solve a math problem quickly learns that he needs to follow a specific series of steps in an orderly manner without making a single error.

2. Math equips you with problem-solving skills that help you analyze real life situations and arrive at logical solutions based on the given data.

3. Math teaches us many significant skills that we use every single day without even realizing it. For instance, a working knowledge of fractions is useful while interpreting road signs that tell us the distance we must cover to reach a destination.

Algebra is not just for the college-bound. Even high school graduates headed straight for the work force need the same math skills as college freshmen, the ACT found. This study looked at occupations that don’t require a college degree but pay wages high enough to support a family of four. Researchers found that math and reading skills required to work as an electrician, plumber, or upholsterer were comparable to those needed to succeed in college.

Algebra is, in short, the gateway to 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. http://www.greatschools.org/students/academic-skills/354-why-algebra.gs
