Advanced Math/Chess Hand Rule.


Dear Prof Scott

Is there any rule in Chess game where the player who plays with either White or Black has to use the same Hand for making moves?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

From what I have known, it makes no difference.

As I tried to find an article about chess right left,
it showed me articles that were about the right and left sides of the brain.

It doesn't relate to your question, but from what I know, even those aren't correct at all times, for according to them, most analytical thinking is done on the left side of the brain.  This might be correct in most cases, but the left side of my brain is declared to be dead from the automobile accident which left me in a coma for a few weeks.

To those who say that the rules are always right, they need to meet me and do tests on me.
Maybe its because I'm slightly ambidextrous.  Then again, the fact is, God is in control.

Not the Twilight (ever heard of the 'Twilight Zone'?)

God's in control
of all my soul
and what I do
is be made new
since I give praise
on all my days
to Him alone -
you in that zone?

I can answer any question in general math, arithetic, discret math, algebra, box problems, geometry, filling a tank with water, trigonometry, pre-calculus, linear algebra, complex mathematics, probability, statistics, and most of anything else that relates to math. I can also say that I broke 5 minutes for a mile, which is over 12 mph, but is that relevant?


Experience in the area; I have tutored people in the above areas of mathematics for over two years in I have tutored people here and there in mathematics since before I received a BS degree back in 1984. In just two more years, I received an MS degree as well, but more on that later. I tutored at OSU in the math center for all six years I was there. Most students offering assistance were juniors, seniors, or graduate students. I was allowed to tutor as a freshman. I tutored at Mathnasium for well over a year. I worked at The Boeing Company for over 5 years. I received an MS degreee in Mathematics from Oregon State Univeristy. The classes I took were over 100 hours of upper division credits in mathematical courses such as calculus, statistics, probabilty, linear algrebra, powers, linear regression, matrices, and more. I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degrees. Past/Present Clients: College Students at Oregon State University, various math people since college, over 7,500 people on the PC from the US and rest the world.

My master's paper was published in the OSU journal. The subject of it was Numerical Analysis used in shock waves and rarefaction fans. It dealt with discontinuities that arose over time. They were solved using the Leap Frog method. That method was used and improvements of it were shown. The improvements were by Enquist-Osher, Godunov, and Lax-Wendroff.

Master of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematics. Bachelor of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematical sciences. This degree involved mathematics, statistics, and computer science. I also took sophmore level physics and chemistry while I was attending college. On the side I took raquetball, but that's still not relevant.

Awards and Honors
I earned high honors in both my BS degree and MS degree from Oregon State. I was in near the top in most of my classes. In several classes in mathematics, I was first. In a class of over 100 students, I was always one of the first ones to complete the test. I graduated with well over 50 credits in upper division mathematics.

Past/Present Clients
My clients have been students at OSU, people who live nearby, friends with math questions, and several people every day on the PC. I would guess that you are probably going to be one more.
