Chess Mates Advanced Chess will give those students that know how to play chess an opportunity to hone their decision making and concentration skills with chess matches and varied gameplay alongside other veteran players and classmates. We will pursue a better chess game with a focus on chess concepts, tactics and strategies using puzzles, arithmetic and geometry. We will learn to read and record chess matches with algebraic notation and play through some historic matches of chess masters, past and present.
Chess is one game that everyone can play and enjoy while continuing to improve over a lifetime. The benefits of chess have shown to include mathematical development, analytical decision-making, concentration, social skills and sportsmanship to name a few. Having fun while challenging ourselves and our friends with solid chess-play and hopefully instilling a lifelong love of the game is always the goal.
