TOPIC

Today’s learning links History to Maths.

L.I.- To understand the Maya Number System.

The Maya had a different number system to the one we use.

They used stones, sticks and shells to represent their numbers.

The PowerPoint below will explain how their number system worked. I would suggest that you see if you can collect some stones, sticks and shells (if you haven’t got any shells  then just use something else like maybe coins) that you can use to make the numbers.

Lesson Presentation Maya Number System

Now have a go at working out some Maya numbers.  Try making the numbers 1-19 using your sticks and stones. The sheets below will help you:
