The example is an open-ended modeling exercise for students with Algebra II skills.

The students are asked to a build a model with difference equations (like recursively defined sequences with time steps).

The scenario is stocking a lake with trout.  The students should decide the details of the scenario

and see how the trout population changes over time.
