- Stock Exchange Maths
On a similar maths theme, another project that is worth exploring is a Stock Exchange challenge. Using real data, freely available, give each child a (pretend) budget of £100 (for example), asking them to buy and sell shares throughout a couple of weeks. Track performance daily, exploring percentage rise/falls in the prices, and see how rich the pupils can become. Opportunities also arise in talking about how people can also lose a lot of money this way, which may become apparent throughout the project.
