The Maya Calendar: A Native American Curriculum Unit for Middle and High School. NATAM VIII.
Torguson, Edgar A.
Written to fulfill the requirements for a University of Minnesota College of Education off-campus Indian education course for public school teachers, this Native American curriculum unit for middle and high school reflects the calendar achievements of the Maya Indians. The calendar is discussed in terms of its base number 20 (vigesimal system), notation, and historical connotations. A Maya calendar and Julian calendar are illustrated with long count date, Julian date, and year-bearer. A 13-item bibliography is included. (MJB)
