Perhaps you are expecting him to run before he can walk? Teach him the basics of algebra and then a + b = 5 should be intuitive. I know we live in an age where logic supposedly triumphs, but teaching things to young people so that they become intuitive makes life a lot easier down the line. When I started writing applications at 13/14 I didn't have any problems at all with such statements because I already had a basic understanding of algebra, hence defining and manipulating variables was already second nature. After all, the use of such variables in computer science was based on mathematics, so why not teach things in the order they happened?
