Whether you program, work with spreadsheets, or frequently work with numerical data, you will find this lesson particularly helpful.
The first two number keys we will learn are: 7 8
To type the 7 key, use your right index finger to strike the key above and to the left of the u key. The 8 key is typed with the right hand middle finger, reaching above and to the left of the i key.
We will now learn to type: 9 0
Type the 9 key using your right ring finger to reach above and to the left of the o key. For the 0 key, reach above and to the left of the p key.
Let's learn some left hand keys now. We will start with: 4 3
The left index finger is used to type the 4 key. Reach above and to the left of the r key to reach it. To type the 3 key, use your left middle finger to reach up and to the left of the e.
Good work! You've covered more than half of the numbers! The next two to learn are: 1 2
The 2 key is typed with your left ring finger. It is located above and to the left of the w key. Type the 1 key with your pinky finger, reaching up and to the left of the q key. This one should be easy for you, since you learned to type this key in the last lesson, when you typed the ! character. The difference is that to type the 1 you do not use the shift
Almost done! The last two numbers to learn to type are: 5 6
Both the 5 and 6 keys are typed with the left index finger. The 5 key is located above and to the right of the r key. The 6 key is a bit more of a stretch - it is above and to the right of the t key.
Fantabulous! You can now touch type any number! Let's put it all together and test out your new number typing skills: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
