Abstract

ABSTRACT

 Numerous studies have proven that chess indicates a player's mental skills and ability to think. The goal of our study is to explore the process of learning chess in elementary school in the context of the integration of mathematics and chess, as well as to develop and offer methodological suggestions that will improve the efficiency of understanding mathematics. By solving non-standard "chess" problems in math classes and extracurricular math lessons, the link between chess and the development of spatial thinking can help to foster the development of a unique capacity to operate in the mind.
