Actually, algebra can be fun and evil at the same time.  Take a massive problem for instance.  Once little mess-up, and it's all screwed up.  Not to mention the apparent impossibility of finding that one little mess-up once you're done.  O_o

However, if you solve a huge equation flawlessly, you feel like you're king of the world.  :D

I love Algebra! :P I wish that was all I'd have to take for my major but, I had to take Calculus I and I HATED it.

I HATE MATH ALTOGETHER! Numbers are not my strongest suit, but if I to pick, it would have to be geometry.

I suggest reading a book about some math subject. Math is actually really cool, but only if you aren't being tested on it. I recommend books like:

Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea by Charles Seife (very cool appendix in this one)

An Imaginary Tale: The Story of i [the square root of minus one] by Paul J. Nahin

A History of Pi by Petr Beckmann

Dang it, can I un-vote?

I accidentally voted for algebra...I like Calculus better.

Calculus is really cool because of how you can apply differentiation and integration to the real world.  Related rates pwn.   :cool:

EDIT: National Pi Day FTW!
