It might alarm your students a bit to learn that chess has more than a little math involved. Each piece on the chessboard has its own value attached to it. The value of each piece varies according to the power and role of the pieces in the game. For example, the king is valued at worth the entire game; the queen is valued at 9 points etc. In the worksheet, your child is required to use the value of the pieces to solve the equations at the bottom of the printout.
Chess revolves around careful strategizing, smart thinking, and calculated moves. In a situation where a player is in the position to make two different captures of enemy pieces, the player must go for the capture that will fetch a higher value. For instance, forgoing capturing pawn to capture a knight. In this worksheet, your children must choose which capture is better for each black piece. Ask them to circle all the correct answers.
