Mika Munakata 

February 2005, Volume 98, Issue 6, Page 386

Abstract:
Challenging students to construct cooperative logic problems to expose them to the mathematical thought processes involved. Students create a problem with four to six clues to the answer. Problems are worked cooperatively with each member receiving and responsible for applying/contributing their one clue. Applicable for any level, but examples are from geometry.
