From those early years back then, it is evident there was a schedule they used. The people back then knew the significance of having a schedule, though they used different schedules from those available today. The Maya system was one of earliest used schedules to calculate time periods for the astronomers, mathematicians and other scientists.
In the 6th BC is when the first Mayan was used. Early on the Mayan was used just to calculate time in periods and was only used in understanding if one occasion came before or after the other. This enabled them to understand the linear conception of time in the past, present and in future. The Mayan was later improved to one of the most complete systems of those days, and it was able to calculate long periods of time referred to as long count and another form to calculate short periods known as short count.
They used a certain past day which formed the base starting point of the formation of the schedule. There are several reasons as to why the Mayan development was very important to the scientists and historians. Due to the interest the Mayan shows in the lunar cycles the astronomers scientists have studied it many times. The existence of supplementary form known as the Venus cycle shows that they could calculate Venus cycle very accurately. This accuracy was in fact due to observations from the early astronomers and this is of great help to the modern astronomers. The correlation form was used in correlation with the beliefs they had.

On the other hand the historians’ are greatly interested in Mayan due to the evidence that there exists relationship between the supplementary cycles and the animals and food. The Mayan demonstrated the significance of the people’s culture and believe. Peoples way of life was generally based on the culture that they observed.
Why No One Talks About Reminders Anymore
It is evident that civilization has been existence for a long period of time, gauging this from the information obtained from Mayan and how it was being used. They had in fact the full concept of time and understood clearly how different time changed due to their knowledge of the past, present and future and this was actually the point where they based their area dates from. The supplementary forms were used when the method for calculating time failed, this demonstrates the early people intelligence. This was a great step so as to ensure accuracy in calculating forms based on their scientific knowledge acquired in astronomy. The peoples civilization is shown by the fact that they base their lives on these periods and intervals. There has been tremendous improvement in the way people base their schedules today.
