Abstract
Recently most research leads to how students understand processes mathematical idea. Algebra is the most topics that discussion in international aspect. Their debate for the topic algebra is about how the students are thinking algebraically and how to solve the student's difficulties while learning algebra. The current issue appears in elementary school is algebraic thinking. Algebraic thinking is about a way of students thinking to make generalizations, solve the problem, make the prediction, justify the model and prove the mathematical ideas. Mostly algebraic thinking is still discussed in middle school, but for the transition from elementary to middle school aspect algebraic thinking is not much. This paper presents the condition around Indonesia curriculum, and the material content afterward gives the country that has been developed algebraic thinking. It is recommended for further research in Indonesia in how to promote algebraic thinking in elementary and middle school as the transition of arithmetic to algebraic thinking.
