A sexual act where one person (male or female) kneels at a man's side, and with the fingers of one hand probes the anus in a calculator-button pushing motion. The other hand grips the penis and strokes it in a crank handle fashion, as if he or she is operating an old-time crank-handle calculator.
Sally promised the college math professor that if she performed the mathematician on him he would shout out prime numbers at the top of his lungs.

What the school system thinks you want to be. If you travel to every dimension, you absolutely will not find one in which you will become a mathematician, let alone thinking of being one. But that doesn't matter because the school wants you to make this dimension the one where you will become a mathematician. The school system doesn't care about you.

"Your dreams and ambitions? You can forget about that shit. We don't care." - School System
School: Hey retard, heard you wanted to be a chef, do you think you can put passion in becoming one?
Student: Yes, I've made my own recipes and had my friends and family try them, they loved my cooking! I wish I could spend more time in cooking but school is getting in the way and I do-
School: Shut the fuck up. I keep telling you, you fucking retard. Putting all that passion into memorizing algebra formulas will help you in becoming a successful mathematician.
Student: *Eyes tearing up* But I don't even want to be a mathema-
Student: *sobbing*
