Do you remember the stairs of the school that you went to? Do you remember what they looked like? If you are like most people, then you do not really remember little things like that but the students at Estes Park Elementary School are a little different when it comes to their stairs.

The hope is that the math stairs will inspire teachers and students alike to constantly keep math problems and equations in the forefront of their thinking. By engaging the students’ with these fun colorful stairs, they are more likely to remember the problems and quiz each other on them.
