High School Chess Meeting Twenty Two
On Friday, March 4, only five students attended, due to a tennis tournament and Calculus Bowl being held at the same time. Nevertheless, it was a productive chess club meeting. I worked with two students on the "king and pawn versus king win" from People, Places, Checkmates: Teaching Social Studies with Chess while two other students completed a ladder game. When the fifth student arrived, he helped the two groups solve the Eight Queens problem featured in my book Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving.
