algebra is one of the main branches of pure mathematics.
When unlike other branches, it uses letters to refer to unknown numbers, and you're usually required to figure out what number does the letter refer to.
Complicaited yes, but absolutely fun.
Unlike what some idiots stated, it can be use very frequently in daily life!
Algebra can vary from Elementary algebra which is the easiest, to Algebraic combinatorics.
Algebra is the best lesson in school, it can be a bit complicated yet very logical and easy.
2) The class kids in India, China, and Japan master by the age of 8 thanks to parents that respect education, work with the kids (because they can), and know the material themselves (because they don't sit around all night eating processed food and watching FOX News).
3) A class that American parents continually harass teachers about so the teacher will pass their little air sucking waste of tax dollars despite them being unprepared to move forward with their mathematical lives.
4) A mathematics course people call "dumb" because they can't pass it. also see oxymoron
2 but I just don't understand why x is 1! I hate algebra!
I'm going to give up, stop thinking, and go play with
myself until I forget how dumb I am.
Indian/Chinese/Japanese parent: Did you finish your
Indian/Chinese/Japanese kid: Yes and I got them all
right because I read the book and didn't stop until my
answers matched the answers in the back of the book.
Indian/Chinese/Japanese parent: Well done! But prove
the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra now since
American math is made so easy for the fucktards, then
I will feed you!
Parent: He says he's trying hard and his tutor says he's knows the material.
Algebra Teacher: Your kid doesn't study and is manipulating you. If you keep fighting all his battles for him, you will do it the rest of your life while he lives in your basement downloading porn for a living.
Algebra is dumb!
An artform relating manipulation of numbers. The most important 'tool' in the understanding of the universe, and the very foundation for the advancement of human civilization so far.
"I ain't givin you my number."
Most of it is useless to you- only the easy stuff like 10x=30 is what you will actually use in life. Unless you become a computer programmer. Then you're screwed.
Relatively simple- only dumbasses say it's hard.
