I think one of the best ways for kids to learn to deal with algebraic
expressions and then formulas is with the Hands on Equation system.  It allows
them to physically manipulate objects to keep and equation balanced.  After the
kids are comfortable with the ideas they are then able to move to more abstract
ideas and apply algabraic reasoning to a formula.  I have had great success with
fifth graders using this method.
