no

I disagree.

Third graders get a start on algebra with problems like this:

3 times some number is 6. What is "some number?"

3x = 6
x = 2

Yes, 3rd graders do begin algebra. What goes in the missing blank.
3 + blank = 10. In future grades the students will learn that the blank will actually turn into x or y.

they don't really learn algebra they just have a box where a middle or high school student would have a variable

this is not algebra!!!!!!!!!!! It's simple . The answer is 2 duh! I'm taking algebra and it's much more complicated this is algebra: |x - 2| - 4|-6|that's pre algebra this is algebra : 1/3x+1/3y=-4
this is not : 3x=15 !

yes many kids use algebra without even knowing it.your child has been using it since 2nd grade.

Most 3rd graders learn some algebra., but from fourth grade it gets a little more complicated so an example for the third grade algebra is :

3×?=15

No, 3rd graders don't get algebra. 4th can get those really easy ones such as 2*?=32. 5th is more of rounding decimals and things like that. Algebra doesn't come in until like 7th grade.

Sometimes 3rd graders can, but just those really easy ones like 3*?= 12. But this really depends on where you are, because different places have different learning methods.

I donNO!
