Answer:

For those pursuing a degree that requires a lot of math, algebra is the level of math that must be understood before learning more advanced mathematics. Many students will fail calculus if the fundamentals of algebra are not comprehended. For those pursing a degree that does not require a lot of math, mastering algebra will help with troubleshooting, problem solving and critical thinking. Many do not realize that algebra is used in one form or another on an almost daily basis.
