week 07

The Mayans had a numbers system that was base-5 rather than our base-10 method. Look at the image below - how is it different to ours?

Create a poster and send it to your class email. Research how the Mayans wrote numbers bigger than 19 - it gets a bit more different to our system here! How could you write multiples of 10? What about 58? Sent in your answers!
