Discussion for Calendars through the Ages
Linda Scarpa (Consultant)
This site promotes discovery through multidisciplinary approaches. It has a wonderful history of calendars and how they have changed through time. It cleverly presents the mathematics behind the adoption of different calendars. There is also an excellent "Do It Yourself" section, which presents a study of the phases of the moon. This would be a great activity for students of all ages. There are many activities that could be created from the information on site for science and mathematics.
The web site uses the an interactive program called Spicy Nodes. It allows you to go to different areas quickly. It is extremely helpful since the material is vast.
