Fluctuations are extremely important in the study of populations, for they enable scientists to study how a population is impacted by its environment.

A biologist at the Trout Lake Station at North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research Center site explains how mathematics is used to understand and describe the investigations of the growth of fish populations.

This lesson challenges students to:
