hey, 'chess' isnt an area of knowledge according to the ib, if thats what you're asking.

indeed there can be chess knowledge: learn basic basics and then learning

being a avid chess player myself, i would say its a combination of maths/arts

maths: obviously the rational side to calculating moves. However, arguably its not a science since it doesn't use the scientific method.

arts: there can be a lot of beauty associated with certain positions/games. much like how a proof in maths can be "beautiful". i remember a quote from an artist/poet who said that chess is a freer version of art/poetry where theres less limits or something like that

Hey,

Thanks a lot for the confirmation. I had a feeling to because it blends a number of areas of knowledge as well has every way of knowing in plenty. I used it in my presentation and it went quite well with the examiners... Thanks again... by the way, do you play online chess?? we could play you know, its fun.
