American Sign Language: "total" (sum, all total)

The sign for "total" starts with loose claw hands.  I hold my left hand up and a bit to the left.  I hold my right hand down and off to the right. Then I do a bit of a fancy move as if there is a column of numbers hanging in the air and I magically scoop them all together.  You can do this sign with "either" hand as the one on top and it still means the same, but hey, I recommend you do it the way the person giving the grade does it (or your Deaf friend).
