The ability to partition numbers
(explode them into units, tens, hundreds etc) is essential and is typically introduced in Years 2/3 with the concept of place value
. An understanding of number partitioning
is vital for all subsequently taught methods of calculation.
After understanding two

, children need to understand that four digit numbers
are made up of thousands, hundreds, tens, and units components. These 4-digit number partitioning worksheets
are designed to give children partitioning practice.
