In computational complexity theory, the complexity class ELEMENTARY of elementary recursive functions is the union of the classes in the exponential hierarchy. The name was coined by László Kalmár, in the context of recursive functions and undecidability; most problems in it are far from elementary. Some natural recursive problems lie outside ELEMENTARY, and are thus NONELEMENTARY. Most notably, there are primitive recursive problems which are not in ELEMENTARY. We know Whereas ELEMENTARY contains bounded applications of exponentiation, PR allows more general hyper operators which are not contained in ELEMENTARY.
A fundamental element.
Elementary, primary, rudimentary refer to what is basic and fundamental.

I’ve been teaching now for 19 years and I’ve been doing this work of completely disrupting systems in elementary schools and school systems for this 19 years.
I would’ve never guessed I would’ve been a teacher, i started out my first degree program, computer science, wanted to work in computers, worked at Wells Fargo for eight years. In that time, during my service in the National Guard, I was put on the border mission in 2006. That’s when I started working a lot with the students at an elementary school and it just kind of touched me. It made me realize that here I am serving the country but there’s other ways that I can serve the country, as well, and serve the community.
They came back to the party shortly after midnight bragging that they had shot up Pinewood Elementary School.
The true spirit of our nation is Americans lifting up one another in times of need and hardship, we are truly grateful for the generosity of Texans and Americans like Bo Jackson, who have stepped up to help in the aftermath of the shooting at Robb Elementary School. When we asked people to support the Uvalde community in the days after, Bo Jackson did not hesitate in reaching out to my office to offer Bo Jackson help to the grieving families.
I think we're still in the infancy of this, it's still such a new thing, and we're all excited about it. My own kids are still in elementary and middle school, so they have not done blended learning yet, but they definitely will when they get to high school.
