About the Book

New Math Chess is a two-player educational and recreational game played on ten Digit pieces (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and six Operator pieces (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Power (Square & Cube), and Root (Square Root & Cube Root)). The book focuses on the explanation and applications of four fundamental concepts governing the feasibility and the success of the book: (i) Attachment of Digits to an Operator, (ii) Partial Values of an Operator, (iii) Partial Equality of two Partial Values of an Operator, (iv) Partial Equality of an Operator with its Partial Values. The book provides 20 chess games with solutions for the readers to practice. New Math Chess is flexible and suitable for all students from middle and high schools to universities.
