    What are the main types of mathematics?

    By types, I mean general areas. For example:
    -Differential calculus
    -Integral calculus
    -Multivariable calculus
    -Linear algebra

    Hey Cinitiator and welcome to the forums.

    This is a multi-faceted question: it depends how you look at it.

    The big areas of pure mathematics include analysis, topology and algebra. These are divided up into sub-areas and so it goes on.

    This site will do a better job than I ever can:
