There is general agreement that EA comprises two central features:
EA research typically focuses on
In addition to strengthening children’s arithmetic understanding, EA helps children learn more advanced mathematics taught in middle and secondary grades. In particular, EA helps children
It democratizes access to mathematical ideas so that more students understand more mathematics and, thus, have increased opportunity for lifelong success.
Children from diverse socioeconomic and educational backgrounds can
(1) provide critical research sites for developing a comprehensive evidence base on the impact of early algebra education and
(2) sustain early algebra education in schools for viability in children’s learning.
