__PREFACE__

Bishnupur is recognized as a 'Temple City' in West Bengal. It was named by the name of 'Lord Bishnu'. Once it was known as 'Bon-Bishnupur'. The area was surrounded by forests. It produces a lot of excellency. They were famous in different fields namely, Culture, Music, and 'Bishnupur Gharana' etc. The nobel personalities were Gopeswar Bandyopadhyay, Jadu Bhatta and Ganendra Goswami etc. In the seventeen century Malla Rajas ruled Bishnupur. During Malla Raja's period, education did not reach the common sector. To spread education in the common people, some noble hearted men thought to set up schools and colleges in the locality. In 1879, a school named 'Bishnupur High School' was established. After a few decades Ramananda College was set up on 1^{st} day of July in the year 1945. Firstly, there was no College Building in the town. Classes were taken in the building of Ramnalini Chakraborty who was a social worker of Bishnupur town. He denoted huge land of College building and playground for the College.

In the begining only Arts stream was introduced in the College. The Governing Body (G.B) of the College felt the necessity of opening science stream in the College. With their sincere efforts I.Sc course was started in 1946. In the year 1948, B.Sc (Pass Course) was opened. After a few years the G.B of the College deeply perceived that the students have a great interest in learning Mathematics. For this reason they persuaded the University to bring forth Mathematics Honours Course in this College. In 1962, B.Sc. Honours course in Mathematics had started in full swing in our College. In 1962, B.Sc. Honours course in Mathematics had started in full swing in our College. Mathematics plays a vital role in pure science. In the year 2017, M.Sc course in Mathematics has started in the department under the Bankura University. Also the Credit Base Choice System (CBCS) with semester has started under the Bankura University since 2017.

Mathematic is a part and parcel to describe many physical phenomena. Development of mathematical models and structures induce the development of science. Most of the physical concepts solely depend on mathematical concepts. Without sufficient knowledge in mathematics a student of science stream cannot achieve a great success. After the establishment of the Department of Mathematics, the faculty members have paid their sincere efforts to uplift the knowledge of Mathematics among the students. As a result, since the inception of the Honours course, the progress of the students of Mathematics Department have been satisfactory. These results have enriched our Department as well as the College. The faculty members also convey their heartiest thanks to the predecessor teachers for their remarkable teaching ability as well as their sincerity.

Before the establishment of the University of Burdwan (B.U), the College was affiliated under the University of Calcutta. In 1960, the B.U was set up and all the Colleges of Bankura, Purulia, Birbhum etc. took their affiliation under B.U. At present the college has affiliated under the Bankura University (BKU), Bankura, since 2017.

__TEACHER- STUDENT RELATION__

Now a days it is a vital question regarding relation between student and teacher. Due to deep respect and loyalty they are able to gather immense knowledge. Later, the relations deteriorated. At present education it is a commodity. Various types of private schools and colleges have been established in this country. Students have to pay much amount of money for getting education. Naturally relation between students and the Governing systems become not upto the mark.
