Technology Advancement

MIT Technology Review in 2013 highlighted a study that shows 45% of jobs will be automated in 2033. Automation has slipped into every industry to make corporations more efficent and profitable.

Consequently, corporations in business, construction, healthcare, manufacturing, information technology and research industries are seeking employees who are Algebra proficient..

“Algebra is about how to find the unknowns, how to organize information, how to think critically, how to make decisions and how to see patterns,” states Judy Zimny, a former principal in the Dallas Independent School District and chief program development officer at ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development. Algebra is the gateway to higher level math that leads to problem solving and creativity to devise new products and services.

 

Have Algebra Anxiety? You Are Not Alone!!!

Sadly, Algebra I is the gatekeeper for many people. Dr. Sharif Shakrani, Co-director, MSU Education Policy Center wrote in the Fall 2006 New Educator article, The Michigan Merit Curriculum, “less than one-third of the state’s 770 districts require Algebra I to earn a high school diploma;”meaning many Michiganders did not have Algebra, preventing them from matriculation to higher paying careers that depend upon problem solving skills learned in algebra.

“Algebra is the single most failed course in high school, the most failed course in community college, and, along with English language for nonnative speakers, the single biggest academic reason that community colleges have a high dropout rate. Although 60 percent of students enrolled at community colleges must take at least one course in math, about eighty percent of students never fulfill the requirement. They leave without graduating, states Cathy Davidson, a professor and founder of the Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
