Check out the Ilford County High School Maths Stairwell!
A High School Maths Stairwell is a fantastic resource to stimulate curiosity in the subject. We created this design for Ilford County High School in London. It features a selection of Mathematicians who made a huge impact on humanity.
Best of all, the design has transformed a stairwell and turned it into a learning opportunity for students.
High School Maths Stairwell
Maryam Mirzakhani was an Iranian mathematician and a professor of mathematics at Stanford University. She was the first woman and first Iranian to win the Fields Medal, which is regarded as the equivalent of a Nobel prize for mathematicians. Sadly, Maryam passed away in 2017 after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013.
Maryam’s legacy lives on in the High School Maths Stairwell at Ilford County High School. Pupils are able to see a photo of Maryam as they learn about her work in the field of Mathematics. All this whilst walking up or down the stairwell between lessons and breaks at school.
Stairwells are ideal for Wall Art
Many schools are surprised when we suggest their stairwells as the perfect area for Wall Art. But stairwells are a high footfall area of your school, so they’re the perfect space for learning!
Stairwell Wall Art can cover any subject you choose. In this case, the school were keen to stimulate a natural curiosity in the field of Mathematics. But you could also consider using your stairwells to promote history, english, Science, technology, diversity or a mix of subjects.
Mathematicians who changed the world
Imagine how powerful a statement like this is on the mind of a school pupil? “Mathematicians who changed the world”.
Many pupils might not realise that what they learn in the Maths classroom might end up making an impact on all of humankind one day.
But, this knowledge is powerful and if pupils can see the impact of Mathematicians in history, they may start to grasp the potential of what they’re learning.
