Enterprise

The Trading Floor game is designed for larger group enrichment activities or enterprise days.  Students, working in teams, buy and sell as if they are on a real stock market trading floor.

The game content is the same as the Dealing Room version but trades are made using paper shares, banker’s drafts and dollar bills of exchange.  Prices are quoted in round numbers to make the game more accessible and simplify the recording of trades.

The TV and radio news is broadcast on the market screen but news stories are provided in newspaper form. The simpler interface and use of paper materials makes it easier to manager for larger groups and suitable for younger and for mixed ability pupils.

We work in partnership with Innovative Enterprise, who specialise in the delivery of Stock Market Challenge as in-school activity.  For further information, visit Innovative Enterprise or contact Andrew Bernard directly on 0800 434 6424 or by email.

"I used Trading Floor for a mixed ability Year 9 enterprise day and the kids loved it. It kept them entertained for five hours of a school day, which is very rare!"

Simon Davies, Maths Teacher, Downlands School, Hampshire

"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

“The Global Investor simulations give an exciting edge to Maths, developing a greater interest among pupils in its potential.”

Tristan Kelso, Maths Teacher, Royal School Armagh

“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
