This theoretical research brief uses Kaput’s (2008) definition of algebra to describe algebra readiness and algebraic structure as they relate to thinking about algebra and thinking with algebra. Algebra readiness and algebraic structure have been core ideas in our curriculum development work to help students develop conceptual understandings of algebra.
