here we start algebra (exponents, variables, equations, etc) in 6th grade

My mom is an elementary school teacher. She's starting to teach this stuff (basic algebra concepts, e.g. variables and solving equations) to her 3rd grade class. I'm not sure how effective it is, but they're doing it. I know at least some of the kids are understanding. Just goes to reinforce your point, I guess.
