Learning how to solve problems is one of the best supplements to the traditional teaching of Computer Science courses. The presence of multiple sets of well-developed sequences of problems makes teaching much easier and more efficient. The subject discussed in this paper refers to the automatic generation of problem sets considering problems of a specific type. A formal model for generation of problem sequences is described.
