Class Ladder

We’re utilizing a pretty cool chess computer program for our class. On Fridays we have class tournament games. The program keeps a standings of all the students and ranks them on their performance. The tournament is a variation of a Swiss tournament in which players face opponents each week close to their level..(1 vs. 2, 3 vs.4, 5 vs 6, etc…)

Although I’d like to see students lengthen their games by looking at all their options, it’s good to see some improvement.
