An evil form of magic that only the best of sorcerers can master. Not only does it involve numbers, but letters (mostly x and y). They somehow rearrange themselves into supposedly simpler forms of themselves. I don't know how because I have not mastered the dark magic of algebra yet, nor do I intend to. Teachers try to teach you formulas to learn the magic, but half the time it would only take a true sorcerer to know what's going on.
Teacher: Today in algebra, we will be learning about simplifying fractions. Simplify the following problem:
10x/3x2 + 4/x-1 + 5/6x

Me: *Head explodes trying to comprehend the magic involved*

evil noun - An ancient Middle Eastern torture method used today by Al-Queida to torture captured US soldiers to death.

A standard torture session should proceed like this:

After hours of trying to figure out why the square root of six equals the product of 2178#\$^#21#@*(3.3824, the terrorists unleash a barrage of "simple algebraic equations" to destroy their mind and then beat them with a bag filled with Algebra books. After that, they stab them with a spike dipped in variable poison and shoot them in the dick. It pretty much sucks balls.
P1 - "Dude my math teachers a terrorist."

P2 - "Whatever."

P1 - "No, seriousely, he made us do Algebra!"

P2 - "Holy shit man, call the National Guard!"

2. the art of figuring what "y" equals when "x" equals 10 through confusing formulas such ast y=12x^2-563x+1/4
3. a method of making high school math teachers feel important.
1. I was a naughty boy, so i had to take algebra.
2. i wanted to figure what y was when y equaled 2 to the third, i think.
3. my math teacher has no talent in anything

1. A class that makes complete sense to some people, while annoying the hell out of others.
2. An article of clothing worn by mermaids
1. Dude Louis just got a 100 on his algebra test without studying! And I studied for like 3 hours, but I only got a 46!
2. If you want to get to second base with a mermaid, you have to take her algebra off.

Another word for torture. It’s basically a pointless class where the teacher expects you to know everything prior to taking the class and takes much pleasure in making the students miserable. You learn stupid shit like graphing an equation on a Y and X axis which does not really make too much sense. Some problems require you to find up to eight different answers and it’s one of those time consuming classes where you get homework every day. You pretty much will never need Algebra unless you just love Math and plan on becoming a Mathematician or a Math teacher.
Mr. Smith, an algebra teacher, arrived at the last stack of tests. He looks over the students’ answers and chuckles to himself and as he says “This guy is a fucking idiot. Guess who’s getting an F? You are! Haha this is so much fun. Have fun in summer school.”

(Noun) - One of the biggest reasons that high schoolers these days flunk out. It is the largest waste of time, and is also the reason that the United States of America has such a low average GPA, and such a high drop-out rate. It will never be applied to REAL LIFE (something strange to high school teachers) unless you plan to be a scientist, or mathematician (see crazy fuck.) According to your Algebra teacher, you will not survive in life without it. This is pure bullshit, and is only meant to scare you into passing. If you're a writer...you've got to take algebra. If you're an artist...you've got to take algebra. If you're a musician...you've still got to take algebra. If you're a mathematician...my hat off to you.
1. Dave: Hey breh! Wanna go to the movies?

Chris: No...I can't...I flunked algebra, therefore by teacher logic I'm never going to be successful in the modern world.

2. See useless.
