Introduce learners to exponential growth with this real-world problem about algae that is rapidly spreading across a lake in a city park. The task presents the rate of growth and an end value and asks learners to determine what happened at specific times in the past. While the activity is designed to introduce exponential growth, it could also be used as a review exercise in courses that assume prior knowledge of the topic.
