"Seed Problems" in the Teaching of Mathematics.
McLoughlin, Patrick
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v6 n3 p283-92 Dec 1987
The technique of using "seed problems" involves starting with a simple problem and seeing how far it leads. It may inspire different, related problems, or it may be approached with varied tools. Problems related to points and lines, pyramids, Pythagorean quadruples, and regular pentagons are discussed. (MNS)
