I have been thinking about the algebra problem I helped my 14 yo with.  Thinking in a ‘meta’ over principle context, Algebra right now, in these beginning stages,  is about learning to recognize a problem and name or categorize it (polynomial, etc) and know what algorithm to apply to it – and in the next levels to take a problem and break it down into something that a familiar algorithm can be applied to – break it down into something that can be named or categorized and that a known algorithm can be applied to.

Programming is essentially the same.  Framing a problem in such a way and breaking it down into pieces that can then be coded.
