Sorry Today I feel really upset, he was one of the greatest :(

9th Activity THE SCALE

One more week here we are with new challenges. I am very proud of your works and I enjoy showing your achievements on the web… Blog, Twitter, Youtube and Whassap. It is amazing how you collaborate and with the help of your parents.


First Activity:

I have been talking to my good friend Profesor PI, and he suggested me this challenge:

This is a Scale and we are going to learn the value of the chess pieces:

You have the full explanation in the label of the blog: “The Class” and then go to “The pieces” (http://explorajake.blogspot.com.es/p/the-pieces.html)

But anyway we are going to review it again:

1 point each

3 points each

5 points each.

9 points each (some books set 10 points)

The King is not in the list because it is worth the whole match.

I propose a game:

Could you tell me in a photo, video, drawing… Be creative because I really know you are.
The solution for balance the different scales as in the example.

Second exercise:

We are going to be creative, because Chess let us be:

Take the next white pieces in your hand and place them on a chess board, so that the resulting position is Checkmate when Black King is placed on f5

It is not so easy and try to avoid the STALEMATE, that means a draw.

Third Activity:

I have a third activity but this is related with app's
Last I strongly recommend this APP:

It is in Spanish “La Era del Ajedrez”: Travel through the wonderful lands of chess. Accept challenges in beautiful places. Train your skills. Fight against hard opponents. Compare with your friends. Play exciting chess games, resolution tactics, learn chess strategies.

Enjoy this chess game and have fun!
Why don’t you send me a screenshot of your evolution in this app.
The levels are very interesting as well for beginners and no so beginners.

the eight

Welcome back to a new week full of funny activities.

This time we are going to have a break with app’s and web pages although they can be very useful to send me your solutions, I see there are really creative EXPLORERS.

This week I have three different challenges:

The first one is for beginners although you do know Chess can be played by anyone. It is a question of practice.

White pieces give check mate in just one move:

The second one looks a little bit harder but that is because there are many pieces on the chessboard, but think about it.

In this case black pieces give check mate in one move

And the last challenge can be difficult, so I can help you with a hint. First try it without the hint white pieces can give check mate in two moves:

Here it comes the hint. Remember the you can force the black pieces to move pieces without any option... And a second hint, and the most important, you can sacrifice the Queen in order to win the game.

Tell me your experience practicing with chess and enjoy playing

See you soon.

I'll be waiting for your videos, comments suggestions...
