The Bangladesh Mathematical Society (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ গণিত সমিতি) is a learned society of mathematicians in Bangladesh.[1][2]


The Bangladesh Mathematical Society was established in 1972. In 1974, the society started organising annual national mathematical conferences. It also publishes the GANIT: Journal of Bangladesh Mathematical Society. In the 1980s they voluntarily worked with National Curriculum and Textbook Board to re-write the mathematics textbook in Bangladesh.[3] S. M. Azizul Haque, the head of mathematics department of Dhaka University, was the first president of the society.[4]
