Jones, Keith; Mamona-Downs, Joanna
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v69 n3 p283-286 Nov 2008
Brian Griffiths (1927-2008) was a British mathematician and educator who served as a member of the founding editorial board of "Educational Studies in Mathematics". As a mathematician, Griffiths is remembered through his work on what continue to be known as "Griffiths-type" topological spaces. As a mathematics educator, his most profound contribution was, with Geoffrey Howson, in offering a conceptualisation of the relationship between mathematics, society and curricula.
