Chess and Math-Vancouver Style

Ho Math Chess
A Vancouver math tutor is using the ancient game of chess to help students checkmate problems with math. Frank Ho is the founder of Math + Chess, a tutoring company headquartered in Kerrisdale that offers once-a-week sessions to students from Grades K-12, although he mostly deals with elementary school children.

Ho said his unique teaching method combines the elements of fun and competition with the mathematical principles required to play chess. "The goal is to checkmate your opponent, but to do that you need to devise patterns and visualize a chess diagram and come to a numerical conclusion," said Ho, adding that students compete against each other or an instructor.

Ho Math and Chess is the world only children education franchise dedicated to teaching children math (as young as 4 years old) using math, chess, and puzzles integrated workbooks. Ho Math and Chess has many innovative math and chess related inventions.
