When will I use algebra in real life?

Algebra can be polarising, but however you feel, it is certainly powerful. We use algebra everyday to find the answers to questions, and algebra is so important that it underpins our world, including most of the code that keeps our phones and laptops humming.

The basic concepts of algebra build on the maths you learn in primary school, and you can expect to be diving into algebra at some point in early secondary school. You’ll probably cover things like how to use algebra to calculate dimensions and find unknown numbers, and it can often seem a bit disconnected from the real world when you’re tackling problem after problem with no end in sight.

But algebraic concepts are really useful. This specific type of mathematics allows us to engineer giant structures, project future financial forecasts, and track the spread of diseases across the planet. Once you master the basics, you can use algebra in a huge range of ways both in your career, and throughout your life.
