Yes, there are several free resources available that could be used. Do
people think it would be appropriate to have an article relating to the
accessibility of maths on Wikipedia which we could link off? It doesn't sit
completely comfortably with me, but given the almost ridiculous breadth of
Wikipedia's content, perhaps it would not be inappropriate.

It's a great idea. My experience is that getting that core dedicated 
group of users that make a wiki an attractive and worthwhile place for 
people to go for answers and thus drive potential contributors to the 
wiki is a deceptively tough stage, but it would be a useful resource. 
Just gotta get those first hundred articles up to drive traffic to it...
