In some ways, you might say that Algebra plays a similar role in mathematics as grammar does in literature or that vocabulary does in the learning of a new language or that drills do in perfecting an athletic skill.
Many students come to university without the prerequisite math courses or knowledge that they need in order to be admitted into the mathematics and statistics courses necessary for their program. It is for this reason that we at Acadia University offer a course in high-school level algebra. Such courses are typically called Beginning and Intermediate Algebra or College Algebra.
