The simplest reason I heard it explained was that the del or nabla denoted the vector of partial derivatives of f while the regular delta (dy/dx) denoted the partial derivatives of f. So in other words, the upside down triangle notation refers to vector calculus while the right side up triangle refers to your common differential and integral calculus. Does that make any sense?

Yes delta is synonymous with dy/dx in calculus
