I realize that in all likelihood the predominate user base of this site is in the US, but (just as we now (eventually) have a disclaimer pointing out courses are differnet at differnet univeristies) how about some nod to those parts of the world that do not use the distinction of calculus and precalc. This is a particulalry confusing distinction to those of us who would, upon seeing the two choices offered, have no idea where to post a question on algebra. OK, I'd know where it went but then not everyone has been to both US and UK universities. I know it is bad to merely criticize and not offer a solution, however I can not think of a good addition to the description of each subforum. So consider this also a call for suggestions (and probable flaming and accusations of rampant anti-americanism, which would be most unfounded). In the UK precalc roughly corresponds to A-levels (this is a qualificiation taken between the ages of 16-18 after high school and before university) and calc to University level courses. But that doesn't help anyone not in the UK does it?
