Thank you for this question, Cecelia. I was hoping someone else might
answer you on the List. If someone on the List knows the way to sign
this in ASL, then we could try to write it in SignWriting as a group.
There is one book that I know:
"Signs for Science and Mathematics
A Resource Book for Teachers and Students"
by Dr. Frank Caccamise and Dr. Harry G. Lang
National Technical Institute for the Deaf
Rochester Institute of Technology
In this book, SignWriting movement symbols are used in conjunction
with life-like illustrations to show the scientific and mathematical
Hope this helps!
