Mr. C Academy Chess Tournament

We have been busy learning chess as a way to enhance our problem solving skills in math. There has been some research into how chess can improve problem solving in a variety of areas, particularly in math. Every week Mrs. Crompton comes into our math class to set up a chess tournament for us. Not only are we learning important problem solving skills we are having fun too!
