Question about Half-Life (Not the Game)?

I don't understand the concept of elements having half-lives. If an element takes 3 years to lose 50% of its mass, then shouldn't the other 50% be lost after another 3 years? That's what years of algebra has taught me, but no. After another 3 years, only 25% of the mass is gone. Once again, math has screwed me over.
