Introduction to Chess is a course designed for anyone interested in chess, at any level of skill. The course design allows all students to improve from their current level of experience, but is mainly directed toward those who have never played or are of beginning level. Each class period is composed of approximately one hour of instruction, followed by students playing in open or small tournament games. Due to the nature of chess, the instructional sessions are strongly student led.
In addition, students will write 3 papers and take 1 quiz and a final throughout the semester.
As facilitator lectures are of utmost importance, attendance is strictly required: Students are allowed a maximum of three unexcused absences. Additional absences will result in an automatic grade of NP. Students who know they will be missing more than three classes should contact the facilitators within the first week.
Arriving greater than 20 minutes late will be counted as an unexcused absence.
Any non-excused absence may significantly penalize your attendance grade as there are only a few class meetings.
Absences will only be excused if notification is given in advance.
