Chess

Download the Mountain Lake Chess enrollment form here.

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.
 
The program, dubbed "the Evans Method" by the United States Chess Federation, includes instruction, formal and causal play and a team event on a giant, Harry Potter-like chess set.  Students receive prizes at the end of each class to reward participation and trophies at the end of session.
 
Cost:  $160 (ten-week session)
