How did I start to write this Learning Chess to Improve Math workbook? I started to teach my son chess when he was five years old. At that time, a lot of information I had read indicated that there was a strong relationship between mathematics and chess. My son was interested in chess so what would happen if he carried the same interest in chess on to a subject which would require him to use his chess knowledge? What could chess offer in mathematics education? These kinds of questions sparked my interest in studying the relationship between chess and math. What I had found was there had been many chess or math puzzles published but I was not able to find a collection of mathematical chess problems that was specifically created for youngsters. In 1995, I was involved in teaching math and chess at the same time and I started to seriously look into the possibility of creating some math and chess hybrid problems. This is how my son and I started to create the first generation of Math and Chess integrated workbook titled Mathematical Chess Puzzles for Juniors ISBN 0-9683967-0-4 and it was archived at National Library of Canada. It is designed and written for the purpose of learning all kinds of problem-solving skills through over 100 mind provoking and sometimes mind boggling mathematical chess puzzles. The uniqueness of this book is that only the basic chess knowledge and the elementary math ability are needed to solve most of these puzzles. I have been working on refining the contents ever since and after almost 20 years of working the first math and chess workbook, I have incorporated many math concepts and today’s version is the fourth generation. This workbook of integrating chess and math puzzles could be used as a supplemental or enriched material to supplement math curriculum. World’s first and copyrighted Mathematical Chess Puzzles for Juniors workbook The first edition of workbook Mathematical Chess Puzzles for Juniors created in 1995 was a world’s first. I did a through literature and library catalogues searches and publicized my workbook on the internet (including rec.games.chess.misc) resulted in nothing similar to my workbook had ever been published. There was no integrated chess and math workbook ever published for the elementary students at the time when I published my workbook in 1995. In addition, I have updated the workbook since I published the first one 20 years ago with many new and innovative ideas; still my workbook is the only one on the market. It would be devastating for me if some copycat just copied my ideas and formats of worksheets and started to commercialize it. To protect my intellectual property, I am the world’s first on the following ideas and concepts and I am the original creator of unique formats of worksheets:
