Alcova Elementary School in Georgia, USA has come up with a clever and fun way to help  its students learn maths inside and outside the classroom. The school has turned its staircases into “multiplication stairs” by painting multiplication tables onto them to reinforce what students have been taught in the classroom. 

The idea came from mathematician Gregory Tang, who believes that "teaching and learning should be clever and fun," and that maths information should be accessible to students everywhere, all the time. The school has also painted the letters of the alphabet and other key educational material onto walls, doors and floors to help students build their academic knowledge and skills.
