The most important concepts in Algebra will be the steps in solving word problems. That will help you on solving the stressful problems in real life that you will encounter in the future. It will help you list down the necessary steps. It will also helps you think that there are a solution in anything that you will be facing. The least important will be graphing points on a cartessian plane, unless you will be doing some Linear Programming problems in your future work, or you will be an Engineer, that might help you in the future.

Many students wonder where they will use math in their future. Math is all around us and without mathematics we would be lost as a civilization. Success in algebra is very essential as you progress through your mathematics education. An important concept in algebra is factoring. Factoring is a skill that is used in many math classes beyond algebra such as algebra 2 and trigonometry. Also the fundamental concepts such as rules of exponents are important concepts becuase these rules apply to all other mathematics. I don't believe any of the concepts can really be deemed as not important or least importantbecause even if you end up never using the concept in your life you still had to train your brain to think critically and this is something everyone can benefit from.
