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. (2:35)
Calculating Simple Interest
A short video featuring two cartoon characters that are given the task of calculating simple interest on several loans. Its use of symbols makes this easy to reproduce by students. It is pre-algebraic.
The video begins with what simple interest is: I = PRT, where interest is equal to principal times interest rate times time in years. Sometime time is only days, so then days needs to be converted into years. The equation is used to solve some word problems. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
