Early Math on Khan Academy: Math begins with counting. It’s the most important skill we learn in our early years and becomes the foundation for all other math concepts. Once we can count, we can add, subtract, and measure the world around us. Shortly thereafter, we can learn about place values, plots, graphs, time, money, and shapes. These early math skills are presented in this subject’s tutorials in a straightforward, understandable, and (dare we say it) fun way!

“10 fingers” actually not true ” It’s therefore more accurate to describe a thumb as one of five digits that we have on each hand, rather than as a finger. ‘Digit’ is the technical term which covers fingers, thumbs, and toes in humans, and similar appendages in some animals. The thumb is the short, thick first digit of the human hand.”
