We do this so that children can quickly worki out maths problems that involve  numbers by splitting them into smaller units so they're easier to work with. Younger children quickly learn these facts and use them to quickly solve problem.

We use equipment such as numicon pieces, base tens frames and diennes to help children to understand how to split the numbers. into tens and 1's.Take a look at this video it shows you how to partition numbers using diennes.

We can do the same with numicon pieces.

Using Numicon to learn about tens and units, this is combined with ...

Have a go at working through the activities and then if you feel  confident at partitioning and fancy a challenge then play this game.
