During the spring school vacation students in north Texas will have a unique opportunity to combine their interests in math and chess. March 16-20, Dr. Titu Andreescu will join efforts with International Chess Master Marco Zivanic to create a unique and intense program at the QD Academy in Plano, TX (corner of Legacy and Coit).
This program has two parts: math and chess. Students can choose one of the two or both.
The mathematics segment is designed for students who like to engage in meaningful problem solving activities. It is intended for students who have a particular interest in math competitions as well as for those who wish to explore higher level mathematics well beyond the regular school curriculum.
The mathematics component will be structured as follows: intermediate (3rd to 5th grade) and advanced (6th to 9th grade).
The advanced level will be offered in the morning and the intermediate level in the afternoon.
The chess program focuses on developing competitive chess skills. It will strengthen your understanding of the opening, middle and end game. Classes will be organized according to students’ ability, experience and instructor’s assessment.
All students are invited to our AwesomeChess tournament on Thursday, March 19th. It will be a USCF rated three-round tourney starting at 6 PM. The entrance fee for non-participating camp students is $20.
The cost of the Math and Chess Spring Program is $320 for one session (chess or math) or $575 for both. This includes snacks for AM and PM sessions as well as lunch for students attending both sessions, medals, certificates of participation and tournament entrance fee.
