Algebra: deals with mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols. Geometry: deals with shapes, sizes, relative positions, and properties of space. Calculus: deals with rates of change and slopes of curves, typically divided into two branches, differential calculus, and integral calculus. Number theory: deals with the properties and behaviors of numbers. Logic: deals with reasoning and the structure of statements. Probability: deals with the likelihood of events occurring. Statistics: deals with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. Optimization: Deals with finding the best solution from some set of available alternatives.
