You're not really supposed to insert your own spaces. LaTeX takes care of the spacing of mathematical symbols automatically.

If you really do need to insert a space, try the symbol \,

The tilde, ~, works for this, and I believe that the ampersand, &, works as well. These are useful if you want text mixed in with your mathematical formulas.
