Why do you need to learn algebra?
Asked in Algebra
Do you really need college algebra if you took algebra1 and algebra 2 and passed it?
Your need for mathematical skills will depend heavily upon your chosen profession. Some people use algebra a lot, and others don't use it at all. If you are going into a scientific field you will need to learn calculus, and to do that you will need a good grasp of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

Is engineering tough if you are good at algebra?
Basically, any university study is tough. In the case of engineering, you need to learn lots of math and science. However, being good an algebra is a good sign. Of course you'll need to learn quite a bit more than high-school algebra, but knowing this algebra is an important basis - you'll need it to study engineering. Also, it is an indication that you might be good at other, similar, subjects (i.e., more advanced math).
