    For a 'physicsforum' there are double the number of threads in 'Calculus and beyond' then 'Advanced physics' in the homework and coursework section.

    Because it's a "physics and maths help forum" and a lot more people take calculus than take advanced physics: just think about it, anyone who's taking maths, physics, engineering, computer science (probably) chemistry, etc.., plus a lot of school kids, needs to know calculus, whereas only upper level physics undergrads would post in the advanced physics forums.
