I asked this question on math.se and they sent me here.

It is well known that Mayan people used vigesimal (base 20) numeral system, and had had an advanced calendar system.

Except for these facts, I'm couldn't find any more information about Mayan mathematics. I would like to know a little bit more about Mayan geometry or astronomy. Does someone know a good resource which could be a good starting point for my research?

P.S. While researching this topic, I have seen that there is a lot of resources that are almost pseudo-scientific. Of course, I'm not interested in these references.
