A project that requires you to work with your peers - intended to simulate the 'real world' where you work with other people on a day-to-day basis - it does this rather well, because like the 'real world' the bulk of the group will end up freeloading off of the work of the more responsible individuals (usually you).
You: Well I was up all night finishing the write up for our group project. Did you finish your portion?

Brian: Oh yea dude... I didn't get that email, what are we doing again?

You: You do know the presentation is tomorrow morning...right?

Get the Group Project mug.
A social experiment done by schools that almost always ends the same. It'll be one of 2 things. A cruel torture that'll give you a horrible realisation about the world, that you can end up doing all the work and someone else can take half the credit. Or it gives you a week to relax, showing you that you can sit on your arse doing fuck all while someone else works their arse off doing your work for you, and you still get half the credit!

While sometimes people do do equal work for equal credits, it's exceptionally rare.
Teacher: Alright class, we're gonna do a group project this week.
Student:Oh God why have you forsaken me!

A group of idiots who don't do any work at all.
Teacher: We are doing a group project!
Class: Fuck you

Kid 1: Ok, we need to divide up the work. I will do the writing part.
Kid 2: Kid 1 can do the pictures
Kid 3: Kid 1 can also do the planning

quite possibly the most idiotic educational device, created by hyper-ego professors whose sole existence on earth is to make you meet people in the library

Something teachers do to ruin your life.
Usually getting paired with idiots can also double it.

A litmus test to see if a person is nice or an a--hole.
Bryan helped us on our group project so apparently he's nice.

a project that doesn't teach you how to work with others, but teaches you patience and how to deal with morons.
teacher: you will be working with the people around you for this group project
me: *being sarcastic* great! yay!
me (2 seconds later): ugh
