The Use of Algebra in our Daily Life.
1. Algebra is a method of calculating using simple equations to represent quantity and to show relation between them. Algebra is also a part of our life, we use it on measuring the length of our table,notebooks,doors and other more. Another concept of mine is measuring capacity,In school we always measure the right amount of ingredients that we cook. Because to an culinary student like me we are showing how to measure the exact amount of ingredients that we gonna use.Scientific notation can be used in Chemistry,Chemistry uses equations of algebra. Like adding,subtracting,multiplying and dividing scientific notation. In mixture problems, we are using it to know how many water are on the gallons.We always buy water , in that case we need mixture problems.

2. "Mathematics is one of the first things you learn in life. Even as a baby you learn to count. Starting from that tiny age you will start to learn how to use building blocks how to count and then move on to drawing objects and figures. All of these things are important preparation to doing algebra."

3. When writing any assignments the use of graphs, data and math will validate your statements and make it appear more professional. Professionalism is of the essence if you want to move ahead and be taken seriously. Can you see the importance of algebra? Your day can be made a lot easier with planning. In financial decisions this can save you a lot of finances or maybe get you the best price available. It all comes down to planning and using the knowledge and algebraic skills you have to benefit your own life. Use the key you have and make your life a lot smoother.

4. Algebra is one of the most important subjects someone can learn. It is a subject that transfers into daily life, often without anyone even realizing it. Unlike English or History classes, Algebra can be put straight to use once learned. It is one of the most versatile subjects there is....

... New Begin
After the summer vacation was over, I went back to school . The new semester began. The familiar campus evoked memories of my first. I still remembered I couldn’t find the classroom and there was a light quiver in my voice, my hands were shaking when I stood in front of the class to introduce myself in my first class last year. In the beginning, I felt uneasy and nervous in the unfamiliar surroundings. Luckily, I made lot of friendly friends and also oriented myself in school over the past year. For me, a new semester means a new start. In the new semester, as a transfer student I still had lots of class to make up. Besides, I gave myself a new challenge. I chose Germen as my minor subject. After few courses of Germen, I considered German was a very difficult language to learn. In studying a second foreign language, I may encounter different kinds of obstacles so I should spend more time and effort into my learning. This is my second years in school and I am a junior now. In the meanwhile, it is my last two years in college. In the future, I expect that I can partake in different variety of extra-curricular activities in the school, give different try and have plans for the future. Also, I hope I can have more confidence in myself at school and try my best to conquer my fear of speaking English in public. After the summer vacation was over, I went back to school .

...Math and many of its aspects are a major part of everyday life. We spend the majority of our school years studying and learning the concepts of it. Many times, the question of ‘why do we need to know these things?’ has been asked. The following report will explain the history and purpose of geometry in our lives. ‘Geometry’ means ‘measure of the earth’. In ancient Egypt, the Nile would flood its banks each year, flooding the land and destroying the farm areas. When the waters receded and the people had to redefine the boundaries. This work was called geometry and was seen as a re-establishment of the principle of law and order on earth. (Lawlor, 6) Geometry is the mathematics of the properties, measurement, and relationship of the points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids (Foner and Garraty). An ancient Greek mathematician, named Euclidean, was the founder of the study of geometry. Euclid’s Elements is the basis for modern school textbooks in geometry. On the other hand, there is non-Euclidean geometry. This refers to the types of geometry which deny Euclid’s postulate about parallel lines. Once Albert Einstein put forth the theory of Relativity other approaches to geometry, besides Euclid’s wa

...Life without mathematics
Do any of us realize the importance of maths in our dailylife? This is a subject that is applied to every field and profession. Without the application of maths, no field or profession is complete. To help us realize this why don’t we imagine a world without maths?
Imagine living your days without a watch and a calendar. Both the watch and the calendar use numbers, the most basic and important of mathematic characters. How would you know the time of the day? Wouldn’t you miss your own birthday without a calendar?
Consider this, you go to a shop to buy something but since this is a world without maths, you don’t know what money is, you don’t know measurements. So what do you do?
Whether it is a Zoologist assessing the number of animal species on earth or a doctor checking your heartbeat they have to know how to count. Without mathematics an engineer cannot build a bridge. A quantity checker chemist cannot prepare medicines if he cannot accurately measure the quantity of each chemical.
We wouldn’t have had markets and businesses without math as the world of trade runs on money. And as a country’s development depends heavily on its economic growth, wouldn’t that be a problem?
There wouldn’t be any more advancements of technology as each sector of technology directly or indirectly employs the application of mathematics. We are all so used to technology of various types that it will be difficult to live...

...single, coherent logical framework.[16] The Elements was known to all educated people in the West until the middle of the 20th century and its contents are still taught in geometry classes today.[17] Archimedes (c.287–212 BC) of Syracuse used the method of exhaustion to calculate the area under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an infinite series, and gave remarkably accurate approximations of Pi.[18] He also studied the spiral bearing his name and obtained formulas for the volumes of surfaces of revolution.
In the Middle Ages, mathematics in medieval Islam contributed to the development of geometry, especially algebraic geometry[19][page needed] and geometric algebra.[20] Al-Mahani (b. 853) conceived the idea of reducing geometrical problems such as duplicating the cube to problems in algebra.[21] Thābit ibn Qurra (known as Thebit in Latin) (836–901) dealt with arithmetic operations applied to ratios of geometrical quantities, and contributed to the development of analytic geometry.[22] Omar Khayyám (1048–1131) found geometric solutions to cubic equations.[23] The theorems of Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen), Omar Khayyam and Nasir al-Din al-Tusi on quadrilaterals, including the Lambert quadrilateral and Saccheri quadrilateral, were early results in hyperbolic geometry, and along with their alternative postulates, such as Playfair's axiom, these works had a considerable influence on the development of non-Euclidean geometry among later...

...Algebra is a way of working with numbers and signs to answer a mathematical problem (a question using numbers)
As a single word, "algebra" can mean[1]:
* Use of letters and symbols to represent values and their relations, especially for solving equations. This is also called "Elementary algebra". Historically, this was the meaning in pure mathematics too, like seen in "fundamental theorem of algebra", but not now.
* In modern pure mathematics,
* a major branch of mathematics which studies relations and operations. It's sometimes called abstract algebra, or "modern algebra" to distinguish it from elementary algebra.
* a mathematical structure as a "linear" ring, is also called "algebra," or sometimes "algebra over a field", to distinguish it from its generalizations.
A variable is a letter or symbol that takes place of a number in Algebra. Common symbols used are a, x, y, θ, and λ. The letters x and y are commonly used, but remember that any other symbols would work just as well.
Variables are used in algebra as placeholders for unknown numbers. If you see "3 + x", don't panic! All this means is that we are adding a number who's value we don't yet know.
Term: A term is a number or a variable or the product of a number and a variable(s).
An expression is two or more terms, with operations...

12. When you flip a light switch, the light seems to come on almost immediately, giving the impression that the electrons in the wiring move very rapidly.
Part A: In reality, the individual electrons in a wire move very slowly through wires. A typical speed for an electron in a battery circuit is 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second. How long does it take an electron moving at that speed to travel a wire 1.0 centimeter, or 1.0x10 to the -2nd?
Part B: Electrons move quickly through wires, but electric energy does. It moves at almost the speed of light, 3.0x10 to the 8th meters per second. How long would it take to travel 1.0 centimeters at the speed of light?
Part C: Electrons in an ordinary flashlight can travel a total distance of only several centimeters .suppose the distance an electron can travel in a flashlight circuit is 15 centimeters, or 1.5x10 to the -1st meter. The circumference of the earth is about 4.0x10 to the 7th meters. How many trips around the earth could a pulse of electric energy make at the speed of light in the same time an electron could travel through 15 centimeters of a battery circuit in 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second?
For part A, the first step is to put (5.0) to the 10th to the -4th. The numerator would be (0.00050) if someone were trying to put 5.0x10 to the -4th in the form it’s supposed to be in. For the second scientific...

The quadratic formula expresses the solution of the degree two equation ax^2 + bx +c=0 in terms of its coefficients a, b, c.
Algebra (from Arabic al-jebr meaning "reunion of broken parts"[1]) is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. As such, it includes everything from elementary equation solving to the study of abstractions such as groups, rings, and fields. The more basic parts of algebra are called elementary algebra, the more abstract parts are called abstract algebra or modern algebra. Elementary algebra is essential for any study of mathematics, science, or engineering, as well as such applications as medicine and economics. Abstract algebra is a major area in advanced mathematics, studied primarily by professional mathematicians. Much early work in algebra, as the origin of its name suggests, was done in the Near East, by such mathematicians as Omar Khayyam (1050-1123).
Elementary algebra differs from arithmetic in the use of abstractions, such as using letters to stand for numbers that are either unknown or allowed to take on...

#7: Using your media/new technology journal, describe how mediated communication and communication technology affects your dailylife. Apply concepts from the theories and textbook to explain your reliance (or lack thereof) on media.
My laptop, cell phone and television are technologies that I use the most in life. I use these forms of technology everyday, in a variety of contexts. Whether that’s typing up a paper in my room, watching a football with friends, or Skyping with a friend in Paris. The types of technology and media listed in my journal have impacted communication in my life because I do not have as many face to face interactions and tend to be less extraverted.
Whenever I use my laptop, I often get on the Internet. That’s because life has become so smooth with the Internet being easy to access. Some of my main uses with it are connecting with friends, connect to social networks and browse different newsgroups to keep up on current information. According to USC’s Center for the Digital Future, 77.6% of Americans are daily Interne users. That’s more than three quarters of the population and shows how important the Internet is in people’s daily lives. I will be the first to admit that I’d be lost without my cell phone. It is considered an essential in my dailylife. Cell phones can...
