Sequence of branches of mathematics

I need a list that contains sequence of branches of mathematics. What does student should study first, then second, then third... And it would be nice if this list would be detailed.
Thanks in advance

The standard division of mathematics into fields is

but the fields can be studied in just about any order beyond the basics.

The broadest I can think of is
1. Discrete Mathematics (combinatorics, graph theory, [most] number theory)
2. Continuous Mathematics (all the various types of calculus/analysis: real analysis, complex analysis, functional analysis, etc.)
