Manipulative 1 - Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent. Created with GeoGebra.

CPCTC is an abbreviation of the phrase, 'Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent.' This means if two triangles are the same, then each of their corresponding parts are also the same. Click on the blue points in manipulative 1 and drag them to change the triangle.
