Math and Chess go great together! Some say smart people are good in chess and math. We say chess and math help make you smarter. Many students love playing chess so we've created a Mathnasium Chess Club for beginners and intermediate students as well as a fun, competetive chess tournament called FOCUS Chess Tournament that we hold every year. This one is a Back2School tournament which is focusing on raising awareness and supporting families dealing with pediatric cancer. Every year, 2500 kids lose their lives from some form of pediatric cancer. A portion of ALL registration fees will be donated to a local non-profit organization called Keris Kares Inc. (KerisKares.org) which has already raised $200,000 over the last three years for pediatric cancer research and for families struggling with pediatric cancer.

 

Let's FOCUS on playing chess and fighting pediatric cancer together.

Tournament Rules:

  • Unrated Fast-Pairings: means no set number of rounds. Players will be paired as soon and as often as there is an appropriate opponent available. All players will play a minimum of 4 games. Some players will play only 4 games while others may play 8 or more. 
  • Touch/Move and Touch Capture: If you touch a piece, that’s the piece you must move.
    If you touch an opponent’s piece, then you must capture it if it is a legal move.
  • No chess clocks or timers will be used, but players must make reasonable progress to complete a game or a timer may be put on the game.
  • Chess notation is suggested, but not required. If writing down moves is slowing the game, the player will be asked to stop.
  • No player is allowed to comment about any other ongoing game unless asked to by the tournament director.

  

This tournament is not rated by U.S. Chess Federation (USCF) and does not require USCF membership.

Organizer

Mathnasium of Columbus

Mathnasium of Columbus is your locally-owned, neighborhood Math Learning Center.

At Mathnasium Learning Centers, we make math make sense! Whether your child started out far behind or already ahead in math, Mathnasium will help them leap ahead because we know that any child can be successful in math—it’s a matter of teaching it in a way that makes sense to them.

Our experienced math tutors utilize our proprietary teaching materials and techniques, The Mathnasium Method™, to deliver a customized learning plan designed to address each student's needs. Our instructional approach goes beyond traditional math tutoring to develop understanding and build a love for math.

If math is a problem, Mathnasium can solve it. Students will grow more excited and confident about math—and their grades will reflect that.

For students who already excel in math, the sky’s the limit. They will work to expand their math skills and, with math learning made exciting, can see all the doors that being great at math can open.
