This study aimed at analyzing the content of algebra in mathematics books in the third grade to the fifth grade in Jordan in light of the standards of the National Council of Mathematics Teachers (NCTM, 2000), In all aspects of the study for the academic year (2018/2019). The sample of the study included the axis of algebra in each book of this stage. To achieve this, the descriptive method was used through the method of content analysis. Lycartes averages.

The highest scores in the third, fourth and fifth grade textbooks were for the criterion of analysis of change in different environments (1.84), while the lowest level of understanding of relations, patterns and functions was (0.90) And the use of mathematical models between these two grades. In light of these results, the researcher recommends that the criteria for the content of algebra should be considered in the basic stage books in the third, fourth and fifth grades.
