Ho Math and Chess has been embarking on this intriguing quest since 1995 and as a result, created integrated world's first commercially available math and chess workbooks.

The most surprising finding was that some math concepts used in playing chess are not taught during the first few years of schooling. The thinking process of making the next move in playing chess is exactly the same procedure needed for problem-solving in math.

“One of the main reasons children struggle with math is that they have not mastered the foundation of math,” says Ho. “Many parents may be surprised to learn that the root of their child’s problems with math can be traced to the basics they learned in elementary school such as addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.”
