This is math related, but I felt this topic best belongs here in the chat room as opposed to the calculus forum.

When I was a student, we were introduced in Calc I, to two forms of the fundamental theorem, the derivative form and the anti-derivative form.

I have observed on several forums that it seems recently that students are referring to these as the first and second theorems of calculus. Now my question is: is this a recent trend or is this something that has been around for a long time and I am only now noticing it?
