Problem Garden

Mathematics is not a spectator sport. In this portal, we have gathered (and are adding) problems, discussions and challenges that you may try your hands on.

Test of Mathematics Solution Objective 401 – Trigonometric Series

Summing a sequence of trigonometric ratios can be tricky. This problem from I.S.I. Entrance is an example.

Understanding Simson Lines

Simson lines arise naturally. Imagine a triangle as a reference frame. Let a point float on the plane of the triangle. How far is the point from the sides of the triangle?

What if a Simson Line moves!

A beautiful curved triangle appears when we run along the circumference! A magical journey into the geometry of Steiner’s Deltoid.

A Dream, An IMO 2018 Problem and A Why

IMO 2018 Problem 6 discussion is an attempt to interrogate our problem solving skill. This article is useful for the people who are willing to appear in any of the math olympiad entrances.

Test of Mathematics Solution Objective 394 Power of Complex Number

Complex numbers and geometry are very closely related. We consider a problem from I.S.I. Entrance that uses this geometric character complex numbers.

AM GM Inequality, Euler Number – Stories in Real Analysis

A.M.- G.M. Inequality can be used to prove the existence of Euler Number. A fascinating journey from classical inequalities to invention of one of the most important numbers in mathematics!

Homework, Duality, Euler Number and Cheenta this week!

Hello mathematician! I do not like homework. They are boring ‘to do’ and infinitely more boring to ‘create and grade’. I would rather read Hilbert’s ‘Geometry and Imagination’ or Abanindranath’s ‘Khirer Putul’ at that time. Academy Award winner Michael...
