What is the NO-SHORTCUT approach for learning great Mathematics?

Learn MoreFor Students who are passionate for Mathematics and want to pursue it for higher studies in India and abroad.

Dear students,

Let the world engage in rat race. We will focus on deep and beautiful learning.

Here is a beautiful problem that we worked on this week.

Suppose there are 5 points spread in 1 by 1 square field. The points can be at the corners, on the edges or inside the square. Show that the two nearest points are 1/rt 2 or less distance apart.

**Can you try this problem? **It uses the Pigeon Hole Principle (PHP) which says:

If you want to put n+1 pigeons in n boxes then there is at least one box with more than one pigeon in it.

Do not be fooled by the simplicity of PHP. Using it we can do some really challenging problems.

**Another interesting idea that came up in the Physics Olympiad Program.**

This is the velocity versus time graph of a particle moving in straight line. Can you draw the graph of its acceleration (versus time)?

In the Physics Virtual Lab a few kids are simulating gravity of Mars. They hope to create projects leading up to Google Science Fair.

We want kids to break free from rote-learning and formula-cramming. Mathematical Science, be it Mathematics, Physics, or Informatics should be fun and problem-focussed. Moreover the problems should inivite curiosity and imagination.

One such book, that a few of our Bose Olympiad Awardees received is **One two three.. infinity by Gammow**. If you like the wonderful world of mathematics, you will surely fall in love with this book.

**The Bose Spring Olympiad** is coming up in April. If you want to do some real fun problems in teams (and individually), you may try it here:

All the best!

What to do to shape your Career in Mathematics after 12th?

From the video below, let's learn from Dr. Ashani Dasgupta (a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin and Founder-Faculty of Cheenta) how you can shape your career in Mathematics and pursue it after 12th in India and Abroad. These are some of the key questions that we are discussing here:

- What are some of the best colleges for Mathematics that you can aim to apply for after high school?
- How can you strategically opt for less known colleges and prepare yourself for the best universities in India or Abroad for your Masters or Ph.D. Programs?
- What are the best universities for MS, MMath, and Ph.D. Programs in India?
- What topics in Mathematics are really needed to crack some great Masters or Ph.D. level entrances?
- How can you pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematics outside India?
- What are the 5 ways Cheenta can help you to pursue Higher Mathematics in India and abroad?

Cheenta has taken an initiative of helping College and High School Passout Students with its "Open Seminars" and "Open for all Math Camps". These events are extremely useful for students who are really passionate for Mathematic and want to pursue their career in it.

Cheenta is a knowledge partner of Aditya Birla Education Academy

Advanced Mathematical Science. Taught by olympians, researchers and true masters of the subject.
