Why is Algebra Important?
A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting for the teacher to show up for my daughters Photography class, and I saw this sign, so of course I took a picture. As it turns out, there was no class that day, as it actually starts today! Timing is everything.
As it turns out, there is a contest going on in the school where students make posters explaining why Algebra is Important. This student is a shoe in if honesty is considered in the judging!
This also reminded me of a scene I saw on a TV show where a student lamented that they wanted to build a time machine and go back to stop the guy who invented Algebra. Another student commented that they just might need Algebra to build the time machine :) Not related, I just like geek humor :)
