Mathematics refers to the study of quantity, structure, space, change, foundations and uncertainty.

As such, the major fields of Mathematics are quantity, structure, space, change, foundations and uncertainty.

Based on this definition, the major branches of Mathematics include Analysis, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Applied Mathematics, Probability, Topology and Statistics.

Analysis is a branch of Mathematics that focuses on change.

Arithmetic is a branch of mathematics that deals with the study of numbers and the use of the four fundamental mathematical operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Applied Mathematics is a branch of Mathematics that deals with the mathematical techniques used in the application of mathematical knowledge.

Algebra is a branch of Mathematics used to solve problems in business, industry, and science by using variables to represent unknown values.

Geometry is a branch of Mathematics that deals with shapes. It is the study of relations, properties, and measurements of solids, surfaces, lines, and angles.

Trigonometry is a branch of Mathematics that deals with triangular measurements.

Calculus is a branch of Mathematics that deals with rates of change. It has practical applications in engineering, physics, and other branches of science.

Probability is a branch of Mathematics that deals with the study of the likelihood of an event’s occurrence. It is used in predicting the outcomes of future events.

Statistics is a branch of Mathematics that involves collection, organization, and interpretation of data.

Topology is a branch of Mathematics that deals with the properties of a figure that do not change when the figure is continuously deformed.
