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.

"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

"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

“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

“Trading Floor is an excellent simulation. I really enjoyed the game environment and having to make quick decisions under pressure."

Philip McCarron, Economics BSc Hons, Northern Ireland
