“Trading Floor taught us that you have to work well in a team and commit to your particular job in order for the whole team to benefit.  It also helped me to develop skills which would be essential for a job in this area, such as quick thinking and decision making.”

Caoimhe Flanagan, Pupil, Thornhill College

We used Trading Floor for an enterprise day which involved all years on a carousel basis. The students absolutely loved it - the competition between groups was immense!  The high quality resources gives the game a professional look and makes the students think it is far more realistic.  It gives students a valuable application of Maths in the real world.

Simon Hetherington, Head of Mathematics, Al Yasmina School

“An excellent resource that has been transferred to different departments within the school.  An opportunity to apply knowledge and skills in a practical environment."
