"Explore the many achievements of the Maya, a Mesoamerican civilization that was at its peak while Europe was shrouded in the Dark Ages. Discover the mathematical system that showed them how to build pyramids and chart the stars and the written language they left behind to tell us of their triumphs."

"If math is a universal language, then culture should not be an influence. Yet, history tells a different story. Some of mathematics' greatest achievements occurred because of cultural influence. The many achievements of the ancient Maya included a number system as sophisticated as our own. This base 20 system also included a value for zero, a remarkable mathematical achievement that occurred independently of Europe."
