This article reports on a study that has researched teacher professional learning in lesson study communities that enquired into how we might better support students develop skills in problem solving and mathematical modelling. A rationale for professional development of this type, both in in terms of its structure and focus, is presented followed by an illustrative description from the study of a typical research lesson and issues raised in the post-lesson discussion. This is used to provide insight into some of the key issues to consider in developing teacher knowledge for modelling and problem solving.
