Study on the Correlation between Spatial Orientation and Logical Thinking in Students who Study Chess in School
Keywords:chess, spatial orientation, logical thinking, children
AbstractThe role of thinking in practicing chess is obvious because the game is a mental struggle between two opponents, and weapons are the notions previously assimilated. Their operationalization is present both in the training sessions prior to the competition and during the matches. 32 4th grade students were selected and divided equally into two sides, the experimental group and the control group. The Bender-Santucci test (spatial orientation) and the Similarities Test (logical thinking) were used to observe both intellectual and physiological development. The experimental group recorded better marks in both tests, and these results correlate statistically.
