Life involves taking the complex and unknown and simplfying it. Algebra has taught me how to look at a problem logically and solve it. Perhaps even more valuable, it's proved that I can actually struggle for a little while before I arrive at an answer. A painful but benefical truth that is better learned in algebra that at some point later in life when the consequences of giving up are higher. Granted when I finish a lesson I don't just start walking around espousing the virtues of the quadratic equation. Nor do I go around telling everyone how to simplify life's dilemmas by solving for x, y or z. But is that the sum total of a subject's usefulness? Admittedly, I am not destined to be an engineer, scientist, or involved in any other analytical field. I am more likely to find myself balancing a family meal than an algebraic equation. However, my future is still an "unknown". Algebra has taught me how to persevere and solve for that unknown now matter the absolute value of x, y or z." I now say!!! Just minus Algebra from your mind...and education...Can you invent anything without it...I am proud Islam is the Father of Algebra...the source of all subsequent scientific creations....We opened the door to you...and you say...we have no contribution....wow...it is as same as you deny your father...
