Hi All,

For a middle school class curriculum project, I am looking for resources
that describe how various cultures use body parts (especially fingers)
to do counting, arithmetic, etc.

First of all, is there a name for this?

Are there books, journal articles, or experts I could consult?

I'd appreciate any answers; thanks in advance.
