At-a-Glance: Yamie Chess K-8 math educational toy series


Seeing the powerful, yet underutilized role that chess can play in producing favorable educational math results in the classroom, a group of experienced math teachers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford, Vanderbilt, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Columbia and the University of Arizona, were inspired to make a difference in the community.

Together, this highly-qualified partnership—graduate math educators from America’s best universities working with several U.S. chess masters—developed an educational math learning toy that could supplement math educational progress for K-8 elementary and middle school children across the nation and Canada.

Years in the making, Yamie Chess holds the support of Harvard, MIT and University of Chicago math experts, as well as school math and science teachers who teach children every day, because it reliably boosts math learning for both girls and boys of all educational backgrounds and abilities.

Quickly recognized and endorsed by School Library Journal, on merit, as a School Library Journal Best Education Pick of 2014, Yamie Chess inspires both under achievers, average students and gifted children alike, to move towards modeling math in the classroom before high school.

To that end, the K-8 math learning toy is traditionally aligned to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum Focal Points; specifically in algebra, geometry, data analysis, measurement and number sense & operations. Harry Potter chess consultant International Master Jeremy Silman, who created the famous chess scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, also contributed pre-publication support to the making of Yamie Chess.

Written by highly-qualified graduate math educators, the Yamie Chess educational toy pairs imaginative cartoon classic chess characters drawn by award-winning ex-Disney animators, with K-8 math and science lessons approved by grade school teachers, to inspire young minds, educationally designed to support children on a learning path to math success at school.
