Algebra is different than earlier math. These differences are not always pointed out to students.
Students stumble because they think words like “term”, “equation”, “+” , “-” and others are just the same as they were in earlier math, but they aren’t the same at all.
Success in algebra depends on understanding how algebra is different from other school subjects. These differences remain hidden to most students and can lead to a failure in the subject. This becomes very obvious to educators when they see a straight “A” student in lower math suddenly fall on his face in algebra. Algebra is easy for students who understand these differences.
