Jarod Siekman ’20 will present the Forum, “Mayan Mathematics and Different Numeration Systems,” at 11 a.m. Feb. 5 in the Reading Room of Musselman Library.
A math education major, Siekman studied Mayan mathematics during a semester in Guatemala. He completed an extensive research project and also presented his research at the 46th Annual Mathematics Conference at Miami University.
“The ancient Mayans had a very sophisticated and developed mathematical system that they used basically at the same time Roman numerals were being used in Europe,” said Siekman, a junior from Delaware, Ohio. “It was very advanced for the time.”
