When elementary students are learning math facts, teachers often
incorporate algebra. When teachers write math fact equations with a
number missing, students begin to think algebraically. For example,
4x_=8 is an algebra problem with a blank space as a variable.
Students get used to seeing problems written differently and solving
them.
