"Trigonometry, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and discrete mathematics..." are examples of topics in mathematics.

To get a good idea of how maths gets divided up, instead, have a look at your local college's prospectus and the titles of the higher-level papers.

However, it is a common enough request: did you have a look online?

... which should give you a starting place.

I thought it was math, not maths.

Both are fine.

People of the UK persuasion call it 'maths'. In the US and Canada I think it is just 'math'.

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=4758465#post4758465Ok, so what textbooks are there? I need the ones that also give me problems to practice. Without practice problems, I would forget it fast.

Technically, it's "mathematics" - a kind of pseudo-plural of "mathematic" - hence the s on the end of the abbreviation.I thought it was math, not maths.

Him: You do the math!

Me: Maths.

Him: Same thing.

Me: No. Mine has five letters and yours has four.

Him: What's the difference?

Me: One.

What textbooks for what kind of math? With so broad a subject as math, you must be more specific.

Have you heard of Amazon.com? You can find all sorts of math textbooks there.
