Summary Problem solving is often seen as being the core of mathematics. While there are many examples of teaching for and about problem solving, there are relatively few examples of teaching mathematical content through problem solving. This paper uses data from three, apparently quite different, mathematics lessons from Australia and Japan to explore different ways in which mathematics can be taught successfully through problem solving and to analyse some of the characteristics of such lessons. It also attempts to identify some of the supports and constraints for adopting a problem solving approach to the teaching of mathematics that exist in the quite different contexts of Japan and Australia.
