M151: Chessmaster - How to think in Chess in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
In this class I will go over basic openings, as well as talk about how to use Chess in your everyday life. I plan on helping students develop an understanding of how to get better at chess, as well as how to understand what playing "good" chess is. Please bring a chess board if you have one!
