This report contains a resources handbook written for teachers of secondary mathematics. The project started with a suggestion to the writer by a university professor that a resources handbook for secondary mathematics was needed. The writer, consequently, made a search of the library and all available reference aids to determine what resources handbooks were available to teachers of secondary mathematics. The search indicated that no suitable resources handbook was available. The writer, therefore, decided to write one. -- The contents of the handbook has been divided into eleven chapters. The chapters discuss films, filmstrips, the overhead projector, games, puzzles and recreational problems, projects and models. One chapter is devoted to miscellaneous items. There is an annotated bibliography of recommended books and other aids and a directory of publishers. -- The handbook aims to provide general background information and specific information for each topic discussed. The handbook was evaluated informally while in the process of preparation. This was followed by a formal evaluation using a questionnaire submitted to experienced secondary mathematics teachers. A few additions were made on the basis of suggestions from the formal evaluation. -- The writer recommends that other handbooks be written for secondary mathematics. Such handbooks should, however, be restricted to one or two topics. These topics could then be considered in considerable detail.
