"Dealing Room allows pupils to apply their understanding of mathematics to a real life situation in such a creative and refreshing way. I have written this into the scheme of work for all our KS4 classes. It's FAB!"

Lindsay Porter, Head of Maths, Moorside High School, Salford

“I am very thankful for the opportunity to participate in Stock Market Challenge. I feel I have had a very important experience and the skills that I gained taking part in the challenge will stick with me and help me in the future when I enter the world of work.”

“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

"An excellent resource that I will continue to use as it shows pupils how Maths is used in real life and how quickly they have to calculate and think in order to make a profit."

Stephen Dodds, Maths Teacher, Calderglen High School, East Kilbride
