Understand

AMC or American Mathematics Competitions (8,10, 12) are the first step toward International Math Olympiad in United States. AIME and USAMO are the next two steps. Outstanding students participate in this festival of mathematics every year to test their mettle.

Number theory, Geometry, Algebra, Combinatorics

Cheenta program is essentially problem-driven. That is we move from problems to concepts to build the necessary skills in students.

About our team

Cheenta is functioning since 2010 with outstanding school students who performed brilliantly in Math Olympiads around the world. Cheenta Team consists of Olympians and Researchers from leading universities in United States, India and the world. Learn more about our team.

some testimonials.

Jayanta Majumdar, Glasgow, UK

"We contacted Cheenta because our son, Sambuddha (a.k.a. Sam), seemed to have something of a gift in mathematical/logical thinking, and his school curriculum math was way too easy and boring for him. We were overjoyed when Mr Ashani Dasgupta administered an admission test and accepted Sam as a one-to-one student at Cheenta. Ever since it has been an excellent experience and we have nothing but praise for Mr Dasgupta. His enthusiasm for mathematics is infectious, and admirable is the amount of energy and thought he puts into each lesson. He covers a wide range of mathematical topics, and every lesson is packed with insights and methods. We are extremely pleased with the difference he has been making. Under his tutelage Sam has secured several gold awards from the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) and Scottish Mathematical Council (SMC). Recently Sam received a book award from the UKMT and got invited to masterclass sessions also organised by the UKMT. Mr Dasgupta's tutoring was crucial for these achievements. We think Cheenta is rendering an excellent service to humanity by identifying young mathematical minds and nurturing them towards becoming inspired mathematicians of the future."

Shubhrangshu Das, Bangalore, India

"My son, Shuborno has been studying under Ashani from last one year. During this period, we have seen our son grow both intellectually and emotionally. His concepts and approach towards solving a problem has become more mature now. Not that he can solve each and every problem but he loves to think on the tough concepts. For this, all credit goes to Ashani, who is never in a hurry to solve a problem quickly. Rather he tries to slowly build the foundation of the students by discussing even minute concepts. His style of teaching is also unique combining different concepts and giving mathematics a more holistic approach. He is also very motivating and helpful. We are lucky that our son is under such good guidance. Rare to get such a dedicated teacher."

Murali Kadaveru, Virginia, USA

"“Our experience with Cheenta has been excellent. Even though my son started in Middle School, they understood his Math level and took personal interest in developing a long-term plan considering his strengths and weakness areas. Through out the semester courses they have nourished him with challenging problems and necessary homework. His guidance has helped my son to perform well at competitions including USAJMO and others. He has grown more confident in his math abilities over the past year and half and is hoping to do well in the future.

I am impressed with their quality and professionalism. We are very thankful to Cheenta and hope to benefit from them in the coming years. I would strongly recommend them to any student who wants to learn Math by doing challenging problems, specially if they are looking for Math than what their school can offer.”

Does there exist a Magic Rectangle?

Magic Squares are infamous; so famous that even the number of letters on its Wikipedia Page is more than that of Mathematics itself. People hardly talk about Magic Rectangles. Ya, Magic Rectangles! Have you heard of it? No, right? Not me either! So, I set off to...

Clocky Rotato Arithmetic

Do you know that CLOCKS add numbers in a different way than we do? Do you know that ROTATIONS can also behave as numbers and they have their own arithmetic? Well, this post is about how clocks add numbers and rotations behave like numbers. Consider the clock on...

A Proof from my Book

This is proof from my book - my proof of my all-time favorite true result of nature - Pick's Theorem. This is the simplest proof I have seen without using any high pieces of machinery like Euler number as used in The Proofs from the Book. Given a simple polygon...

A Math Conversation – I

Inspired by the book of Precalculus written in a dialogue format by L.V.Tarasov, I also wanted to express myself in a similar fashion when I found that the process of teaching and sharing knowledge in an easy way is nothing but the output of a lucid discussion...

The 3n+1 Problem

This problem is known as Collatz Conjecture. Consider the following operation on an arbitrary positive integer: If the number is even, divide it by two.If the number is odd, triple it and add one. The conjecture is that no matter what value of the starting number,...
