## Abstract

Over the years, the poor performance of students in both internal and external Mathematics examinations has given worries to many scholars. This has been attributed to certain factors. Among which are lack of teachers, attitude of students, nature of Mathematics, lack of use of instructional materials, etc. In response to all these and more, specific strategies have been suggested to be remedial to the situation. In continuation to finding lasting solution to this obnoxious situation, this study focuses on enhancing the teaching and learning of secondary school Mathematics through recreational Mathematics. Recreational Mathematics is a term for mathematics carried out for recreation (entertainment) rather than as a strictly research and application-based professional activity, although it is not necessarily limited to being an endeavour for amateurs. It often involves mathematical puzzles and games. This paper looks at the inherent benefits and practical ways Mathematics can be made a recreational activity instead of something to be feared. Conclusions were drawn based on the fact that play is the birth right of every child and as such making Mathematics recreational will certainly enhance the teaching and learning of secondary school Mathematics.
