CREEDS — Students returning to Creeds Elementary School found that the stairs have a new look and, perhaps, that their opportunities to learn have multiplied.

There are multiplication tables on the stairs. 

Casey Conger, the principal at Creeds Elementary School, said she was inspired by a post to social media about a school doing this.

Creeds, unlike many schools, actually has stairs.

It seemed like a great opportunity to help boost math fluency at the rural school.

“Our kids go up and down those stairs sometimes eight times a day,” she said. “So if you go up and down in one minute, that’s 30 hours per year.”

That’s math.
