ChessKid in the Classrooms
Playing the game of chess builds an infrastructure in your brain that primes you for problem-solving, forecasting, and strategic thinking. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are in place to promote these same attributes.
By playing chess you are covering every single standard of mathematical practice. It can be as simple as putting a chess center in your classroom and the best part is that ChessKid will even teach them to play for you!
