Abstract: Fingering is a technique in performing calculating tasks which involves only the use of the fingers on both our hands. In this article, we put forward our case for using the fingering technique in doing mental arithmetic by listing its strengths and advantages over the conventional pencil-and-paper algorithmic ways of computation and the calculator.
