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.

The Global Investor simulations are superb.  The program works for all ages at secondary and all ability levels and the pupils are completely engrossed in the experience.  It teaches all pupils about the way the world of finance works in a fun and easily accessible way.

"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

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

"Dealing Room served as a great opportunity to reinforce many mathematical terms and concepts. Students developed an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular industry sector, with its direct relevance to the world of work."

Mark Bouckley, Assistant Headteacher, Hedingham School, Essex
