Jugaad is a Punjabi word that essentially means using innovative approaches to solve problems effectively given limited resources and, as such, was chosen as the name for this UK-India collaborative educational research project into the role of Maths in Technology. Year 9 Pupils from southfields Academy and Bluebells School New Delhi, have been investigating the role of maths in an area of technology that interests them; the standard of work has surprised all expectations! These 13 and 14 year olds have completed extensive research into topics as diverse as maths in medicine and maths in space, and discovered, for themselves, topics that go way beyond the KS3 curriculum such as The Bernoulli Principle and calculus.
