How to Enable Automatic Recalculation

I'm new to Mathematica, so perhaps there is a simple answer
to this question.

How to I set Mathematica so that when I change the value
assigned to a variable it will automatically change all
later calculations that use that variable.

For example, if I set

a = 5

and

b = 3 + a

I would like the value of b updated each time I change the
value of a.

Right how, I need to recalculate each and every expression
that uses the variable a if I change its value.  There must
be a better way.
