Trading Floor

Trading Floor is designed for outreach and enrichment activities or induction days and enables students to experience the excitement of buying and selling on a real open outcry trading floor.

The game provides a rewarding and enjoyable activity that is a gateway to developing or demonstrating an understanding of business and finance. It will also help students develop their personal, learning, thinking and functional skills. 

In recreating the excitement of a real trading floor, the activity provides a platform for students to learn how to work together as a team, solve problems under pressure, analyse information and communicate effectively.

“Very stimulating.  Today I have seen students who find it very difficult to concentrate on maths being very stimulated and focussed. I am hoping this will be an impetus which will encourage them more in this field.”

Catherina Gilmurray, Maths Teacher, St. Aidanís High School

“Dealing Room is beneficial as an enrichment activity as pupils would have no access to something like this otherwise.  We will integrate this in to classroom use, mainly in the data-handling component of the GCSE course (graphs, averages, etc.).”

Dominic McNabb, Maths Teacher, Glengormley High School
