“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

“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

We used Dealing Room with three different Business Management classes. All of them really enjoyed it and took it very seriously, whilst having fun.  It is invaluable.

Dorothy Ferguson, Business Education Teacher, Knox Academy, East Lothian

“The hall was a hive of activity as students watched the screens with nervous anticipation. Cries of joy and pain could be heard throughout the college as share prices rose and fell. This was a fantastic challenge.”
