Chess and problem solving involving patterns

  title={Chess and problem solving involving patterns},
  author={D Ferreira and P. H. S. Palhares},
In this paper we present the context and results from a study, with 3 to 6 grades children, about the relationship between chess and problem solving involving geometric and numeric patterns. The main result of this study is the existence of a relation between strength of play and patterns involving problem solving. We have included in the beginning an analysis of chess as a context for elementary mathematics problems, also showing its richness historically.
