Chess is a great workout for mathematical muscles. It’s problem-solving. Students learn to think ahead, evaluate multiple alternatives and anticipate consequences. They improve spatial reasoning, visual memory and attention span while learning good judgment, reasoning power and self-confidence.
International Master Larry Evans and staff teach chess in 33 schools throughout San Diego County. Larry Evans’ teaching technique, dubbed “THE EVANS METHOD” by the United States Chess Federation, includes instruction, formal and casual play and a team event on a giant, Harry Potter like chess set, cumulative merit system rewards camper participation.
