Would these two different roles of a variable be more clearly shown in the phrases: "any value of the variable in its domain" versus "the specific, but as of yet unknown, value of the variable"?

comment Trying to explain what “consistent” means to a middle schooler
Thank you for the clear explanation, but how can this be shown at the elementary Algebra level studied in middle school at the age of 13 years old?

comment What is the difference between equation and formula?
Note: Not every equation is a formula; but by the above definitions, every formula must be an equation in algebra.

Similar to the distance formula: $D=rt$

comment No difference between $0/0$ and $0^0$?
Because it means division by zero.

But the expression $0^0$ has no meaning.

This is a nice summary of "What is $0^0$"

comment No difference between $0/0$ and $0^0$?
When you say "strictly" speaking do you mean if using the standard algebraic definition of division as $a \div b = \frac{a}{b} = a*\frac{1}{b}; b\neq 0$?
