I see you not only have knowledge, but understanding.
I have a CD game called 'majestic chess' since 2001. It is a chess tutorial that presents chess in an adventurous and very unique way. There are many chess challenges that tests the players chess knowledge, and when one is successful, one goes on to the next level till all there is to be known about the basics of chess are known.
queen = 9 pawns
knights and bishops have same value: 3 pawns
rooks = 5 pawns
king: can't really place a value other than to say without it, the game is over.
