Question: How was astronomy used to create the Mayan Calendar? — Joe
Answer: I think that the most comprehensive description of how astronomy was used in the Mayan calendar, including much more information on the importance of science and mathematics in Mayan culture, can be found on the StarTeach Education Astronomy page on this subject.
