During the 1993-1994 school year the mathematics department of Frisbie Middle School initiated a Multicultural Math Fair using Addison Wesley's Multiculturalism in Mathematics, Science and Technology: Readings and Activities [ISBN 0-201-29417-6] as a resource. Each of the nine mathematics teachers decided on one activity and wrote directions for the students to follow. In developing activities attention was given to the genders, cultures, and continents of the mathematicians represented.
The activities are set up annually in a double room with vertical hanging banners naming each station. The different stations are decorated with posters and information appropriate to the culture that is represented. Each mathematics teacher signs up for two days to bring students to the Fair. Elementary school classes visit and use the Fair on Wednesdays because Frisbie students have a minimum day schedule that day.
