Equal Groups & Partition have the same wording… is this intentional? Perhaps consider a partitioning example such as:
78 / 6 so

6 x 10 = 60
6 x 3 = 18

Hi Donna,
You are wonderful! Thanks so much for pointing this out and giving us a better alternative. I have made this change to the poster and it is ready to download again. We really appreciate your feedback on this. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hi – these posters are great but could you please add one for Quotition also?
e.g. Share 15 by putting three in each group. How many groups are made?
