Product description

Named by School Library Journal as a Best Education Pick 2014, Yamie Chess is an award-winning educational toy that builds children's math and science learning skills for school.

Yamie Chess is officially backed by Harvard and MIT math educators for K-8 education, and has earned The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval and the Mom's Choice Awards' Gold Seal Award.

Follow our young chess hero, 8-year old Kimi from Queens, NYC, as he embarks on a math adventure to power up kids' math skills, where the cartoon characters are the classic chess pieces!

The learning toy includes an interactive 260-page K-8 math comic for coloring, topics cover algebra, geometry, number, data analysis and measurement; a US tournament-size classic chess set with cartoon-adapted chess pieces for visuo-spatial reasoning; and 12 quality colored pencils for the budding artist.

The Yamie Chess math comic is aligned to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards and illustrated by ex-Disney/Marvel and ex-DC Comics professional animators.

Yamie Chess was created by U.S. math educators from MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Columbia and the University of Arizona in partnership with USA national chess masters. (yamiechess.com/advisors)
