Videos, worksheets, games and acivities to help Geometry students learn about CPCTC. CPCTC is an acronym for corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent.
CPCTC is an acronym for corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent. CPCTC is commonly used at or near the end of a proof which asks the student to show that two angles or two sides are congruent. It means that once two triangles are proven to be congruent, then the three pairs of sides that correspond must be congruent and the three pairs of angles that correspond must be congruent.

Using Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent
Anytime you are required to prove corresponding parts of congruent triangles congruent, you will be doing a triangle proof. The two examples in this post use AAS and SAS before proving the other part of the triangle congruent using CPCTC.
