Chess Teacher Training Courses

There are two upcoming chess teacher training courses in London run by ChessPlus.

The exciting new course Chess and Mathematics introduces an innovative approach to teaching mathematics through the medium of chess. This one-day course is suitable for those involved teaching children age 8-11 (and beyond). The course is based on the recently concluded Erasmus+ CHAMPS (Chess and Mathematics in Primary Schools) project which handles problem-solving using the Singapore Method. Course participants are given insights into teaching methods for an enjoyable range of maths and games problems. The following concepts are targeted: parity; rotational and line symmetry; the rules of logic; enumeration and systematic counting; collection and use of information in tables. Participants do not need to be chess players.
