Should Algebra be required to graduate high school?

  • Yes, algebra is necessary

    Restating what the first person said, algebra is the foundation for higher level math, such as Pre-Calculus and Calculus. Education.Com shows that most of the people who applied for Oberlin College had Pre-Calculus on their list of classes, and the majority of those people had Calculus. If they had not taken algebra, they wouldn't have had those classes and, consequently, wouldn't have been able to get in.

  • Algebra- a subject of consideraton

    Algebra, a branch of mathematics which uses letters to represent numbers and quantities in formulae and equations, has been under great controversy whether to be included or not for passing the graduation. However, on my side I believe that it should be a subject of consideration because Algebra is the foundation for most of the higher math, and the application of advanced math helps understand physics, geometry, biology and how the world works in general. Algebra teaches both mathematical skills and also the invaluable skill of problem solving. The math may not be necessary for all, but the problem-solving skills algebra teaches through the use of variables and manipulating equations are essential. Moreover, solving algebra problems teaches students to think abstractly, and this skill carries over in to almost all aspects of life.

  • Yes, but taught differently

    I hear arguments against requiring algebra because it's too hard and many fail it. But the real problem is how algebra is taught. I just opened up my daughter'a math textbook and went crazy about what was written there. They way they teach it in singapore is concepts vs. Process, and a way where students become more advanced.

  • Algebra Should Be Requirement for Graduation

    Yes, algebra should be a requirement for graduation of high school as algebra teaches not only mathematical skill, but the invaluable skill of problem solving. Solving algebra problems teaches students to think abstractly, and this skill carries over in to almost all aspects of life. Algebra is very, very important.

  • Yes, Algebra is core requirement for high school diploma.

    As we all know, a quality education is the single most important factor in helping determine the quality of life one may live. Education is the answer to poverty, and key to the American Dream. Without a good education one is relegated to a series of menial, low paying, and often unrewarding jobs. One of the basic requirements of a good education is the understanding of algebraic concepts that one learns in an Algebra course. It continues to be and should be a requirement for a high school diploma.

  • Teachers say we need Algebra and higher levels of math for everyday life, but do we really?

    To be honest we just need basic math such as 2+2=4. Because Algebra isn't useful in everyday life, it's just a waste of knowledge. Careers that require that level of math would be a different story. Such as if you wanted to be a Scientist or an Engineer, then you would need that level of math and possibly higher levels.

  • We are forced to do many years of math.

    We are doing math since elementary school, and we have do to it through high school. And only a few jobs require major algebra knowledge, plus, with algebra not needed to graduate , graduation rates will increase and school pupils will be happier. With lower graduation requirements, we can focus a little less on those, and pull in new classes ( i.e. advanced science)
