- Python Chess is a course designed to help students learn to program with Python through the development of a chess game. Students will learn fundamental concepts such as data types, variables, functions, and loops, and use them to build a complete chess game with a graphical user interface. The course will focus on algorithmic problem solving and making effective use of the Python language. This course is recommended for students with basic programming knowledge.
- Students in grade 6+can learn how to play a wide variety of chess openings/variations and strategies, basic math skills (like how to calculate point values for pieces and pawns, and how each piece moves), and how to solve puzzles and practice tactics. They can also learn how to use chess engines to analyze and improve their games.
