Why is it called REAL Ho Math Chess?


When Mr. Ho and his wife Amanda invented integrated math, chess, and puzzles workbooks and integrated them into math curriculum, it was a hit, children really liked the innovative teaching method and that is one reason that they are able to franchise the unique and effective teaching concept worldwide. So it is not surprising that there are some followers or imitators who decide to copy their ideas but could never get the real meaning of how to integrate math, chess and puzzles all into one workbook because Ho Math Chess holds the copyright and trademarks of many innovative teaching technologies and these cannot be legally copied. By playing chess in a math class is not the

real meaning of math and Chess. Ho Math Chess holds copyrights and trademark of math, chess, and puzzles all integrated materials and knows how to teach real and integrated math , chess and puzzles all in one class.
Parents in Vancouver must make sure to go to Room #1 to talk to either Frank Ho or Amanda Ho to learn the real math and chess integrated teaching method.

How does Ho Math Chess differ from others?


The major difference is our unique teaching method and special math, chess, math contests quality problems, and puzzles integrated workbooks.

Is it important that a child learn math at very young age?


We feel that it is very important that a child learn how to think even at very young age. We can see the dramatic difference a good learning environment can do to a child that is to send child to a learning centre which stresses thinking not just computation. A child can learn faster and will have less headache if a child is trained how to think and realizes the importance of thinking all the time. Ho Math Chess provides many tools to encourage children to think, one of these tools is chess which means a child may be defeated if no thinking is executed when playing chess and a lesson can be learned from the opponent. A puzzle can provide children to discover the solution with imagination and creativity instead of using taught algorithm and this is very important also to train childrens patience and selflearning ability. Math contest quality problems provide children with challenging and their learning and thinking are not bound by the limits of what they learn at day schools. Ho Math Chess provides children with math, chess, and puzzles integrated worksheets such as Frankho Puzzles and Frankho Mazes to provide integrated training in logic, math and puzzles and endless fun. Math at Ho Math Chess is not just doing computation and be able to get answers with timed limit, we want them to think and we want their brain trained to be able to think out of box and be sharp too. With the amount training children receive from Ho Math Chess at very young age, it is only natural for them to get A in math.

24

Why real Ho Math Chess is so special and unique?


Children are not convinced when they were told math will be useful to them in the future (they want fun NOW.), they often talk about video games among themselves and play computer games on their cell phones, but not math. The way to entice children to learn math is to foster a learning environment which is fun for them to learn. For this, many math educators have failed and many kids are still waiting to discover that learning math is fun. For students at Ho Math Chess, the waiting is over since Ho Math Chess sets itself apart from other learning centers or chess clubs in one unique teaching method that is it truly integrates chess and puzzles into math curriculum. Ho Math Chess believes children learn best when they have fun; with this in mind, Ho Math Chess fosters a learning environment that is not only educational but also a fun place to learn math.

The computation methodology the students will learn at Ho Math Chess is completely in line with their school work so there will be no confusion. However, using our teaching method, it will enhance a child's ability to understand math better. We have designed a curriculum to inspire children to understand the relationships between basics math operations. The relationships between chess and math students learned at Ho Math Chess will enhance their understanding of math concepts.
