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.
