Durham Public Schools Mathematics Fair

Math Fairs

Durham Public Schools will be hosting its 3rd Math Fair on March 1, 2017. Schools are encouraged to first hold a school-based Math Fair to involve as many students as possible in the investigation of mathematics. Students representing each school at the district-wide fair can also be determined through this process. School level finalist must be turned in a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the DPS fair.
