Professor William Thurston (1946–2012), who passed away in August of this year, was one of that rare breed: a high level research mathemati- cian who made worthy contributions to school level mathematics education. His work in geom- etry had an enormous influence on mathematics at the research level (it won him a Fields Medal, in 1982); and his paper titled “Mathematical Educa- tion” was studied very closely by the team (ap- pointed by NCERT) that prepared the Mathematics Position Paper of the National Curriculum Frame- work 2005.
