**First: The New Math Glossary**

By D. M. Urquidi

Floyd Lounsbury's whole premise for the Maya Calendar
beliminary calculations were dependent

upon the concept that a

**tr**= 13 x 2 =**haab**which was supposed to be a sacred year of 260 days.
When it fact, it is only half a year of 26 weeks. 2 x

**haab**= 52 weeks which was correct even in the
old Maya calendar. [If you choose to do any changes to the
information below; do not change sequencing for old 360-day year style, only
for Floyd's more correct 365-day year style in use today.]

The problem is that there were no month designations in the
360 calendar. They only used

**year-bearers**. But stelae found buried but broken inside temple floors with a similar stela outside

temples with 365 notations probably were destroyed because
not only were they sacred stelae but

also that they used the older calculations hence their
destruction after the newer sacred monument/stelae replaced them.was created.

I filled out the tr, v, h, etc as thoroughly as I could. I
think I got the sequences correct. Especially the year-bearers. They only ran
two lines but insisted that each Year-bearer held all 13 numbers in each of the
four year-bearing notations. The 0

**Pop**sequence was first used July 26 using the gregorian calendar for the Maya system.
The new year passed with the

**Imix**equivalent to**8 February**was changed to the**0 Pop**which corresponded to**July 26**. No year given; only that it was the second journey of the sun in the latitude 19 deg. 42 min. in the Yucatan. It was when the seasons were finally restored to their proper Place during a year. One number that appeared in the old sequence was the number 10800. A good world-wide astro-math figure in ancient texts.
(Anyone who can finish this historic

360-day year calculation is welcome.)
