My research in primary mathematics education in England focused on the teaching of calculation strategies following the introduction of the English numeracy strategies (Murphy, 2004, 2011a). My recent arrival in New Zealand as a lecturer and researcher in primary mathematics has given me a fresh perspective in mathematics education, particularly in children’s learning in numeracy. This has led me to further review my understanding of different pedagogies and their underlying philosophies.
