A redox reaction is a reaction that includes both a reduction and oxidation reaction. They can be separated into two half reactions: one oxidation and one reduction reaction. An oxidation reaction involves the loss of electrons, and reduction involves gaining electrons. I think that splitting the two into half reactions just makes it easier to visualize and understand, compared to looking at the big picture.
