## 3+2 = 2+3. K5 introduces kids to algebra

K5 introduces algebraic thinking to kids to broaden and deepen their understanding of math concepts.

Kindergarten and grade 1 algebraic thinking involves recognizing, describing and extending patterns. By grade 5 we have introduced the concept of functions and variables, and laid the foundation for later studies in algebra.

## Why algebra for kids?

Early algebra is a generalization of the arithmetic skills learned by kids in elementary school.  Early exposure to algebraic thinking can deepen the understanding of math concepts.

## Beginning Algebra Activities

Our online algebra lessons help kids learn to:

• Identify and extend pictorial or symbolic patterns
• Find the missing element in patterns and identify the repeating part of the pattern
• Understand numerical relationships
• Understand the commutative principal (i.e. 3+2 = 2+3)
• Represent relationships as numerical equations
• Understand variables, use variables to represent unknown quantities, and write equations with variables

## Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility

Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Most kids learn better with more frequent but shorter study sessions.
