Dealing Room

Dealing Room is simpler in design and functionality than Global Investor and has been created as an entry point to developing the skills and knowledge associated with the world of business and finance. 

The game delivers the two elements of financial markets trading - researching and investing - in one simulated game environment. 

Students, working in pairs, invest in 9 companies and the US dollar based on information they get from TV and radio news and from a news website integrated into the simulation. 

Prices are affected not only by the information in the news but also by what players do, making for a genuinely interactive experience. The game is available in English, French and Spanish.

"A very useful tool especially for lessons on finance, the stock market and PLCs.  Pupils really enjoyed the experience and even asked to stay beyond the end of period to continue trading!"

Clare Campbell, Business Education Teacher, Ayr Academy, South Ayrshire

"This is a fabulous Maths tool.  It supports classroom teaching and it is invaluable as an STEM enrichment activity."

William Mackay, Maths Teacher, Leith Academy

“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

"In the Dealing Room simulation our students used their reasoning, logic and mathematical skills to buy and sell shares. They made links between the demand, the supply and the price of a share.  This activity enabled students to use their mathematical skills in a real life situation. It was excellent.”

Maria Gretchen Garcia, Maths Teacher, Morpeth School
