Why do we say that classical physics is a lot different from quantum physics?
We don't (except by mistake). We say that quantum physics is different from classical physics :)

All dogs may be animals but not all animals are dogs.
All classical physics is a consequence of quantum - but not all quantum physics can be described classically.

Technically - classical physics is what QM does on average ... so the math is different.
