The exercises in the Chess 4 Math textbook offer a new and refreshing way for children to get excited about math. My daughter really enjoys working on all of the different exercises. These exercises are informative, but they are also fun. As a parent it's nice to see my child interested in learning new concepts and ideas. Chess 4 Math encourages algebraic thinking, by teaching students to use symbols to represent numbers, as well as addition, subtraction, and recognizing patterns. We have enjoyed working through the Chess 4 Math textbook as a family. I would highly recommend the course to my friends and their children.
