The Case for Chess as a Tool to Develop Our Children's Minds

increase in creativity, comparison between chess and nonchess

by Dr Peter Dauvergne

University of Sydney

 

July, 2000

Abstract

This article surveys educational and psychological studies to examine the benefits for children of studying and playing chess. The show that chess can

  • Raise intelligence quotient (IQ) scores
  • Strengthen problem solving skills, teaching how to make difficult and abstract decisions independently
  • Enhance reading, memory, lenguage and mathematical abilities
  • Foster critical, creative and originality thinking
  • Provide practice at making accurate and fast decisions under time pressure, a skill that can help improve exam scores at school
  • Teach how to thing logically and efficiently, learning to select the "best" choice from a large number of options
  • Challenge gifted children while potentially helping underachieving gifted students learn how to study and strive for excellence
  • Demonstrate the importance of flexible planning, concentration and the consequences of decisions
  • Reach boys and girls regardless of their natural abilities or socio-economic backgrounds

Given these educational benefits, the author concludes that chess is one of the most effective teaching tools to prepare children for a world increasingly swamped by information and ever tougher decisions.
