In this lesson, students will learn how to use the CPCTC theorem (Congruent Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent) in order to complete a proof. They will first use one of the 5 triangle congruence theorems (SSS, SAS, AAS, ASA, HL) in order to use the CPCTC. It is a great lesson putting together everything they have learned thus far in the unit.
