In geometry, corresponding parts are parts that relate to each other, such as in congruent triangles.  If two triangles are congruent, their congruent parts are corresponding. When two lines are intersected by a transversal, you also get corresponding parts.  Each vertex has made 4 angles.  The 4 angles on one vertex correspond to the 4 angles on the other vertex.  There are 4 pairs of corresponding angles.  If the lines are parallel, the corresponding angles are congruent.  A picture would be helpful.I always think of it as the parts that match up because they're the "same" but that's not a good technical definition.  I think another type of example could be families.  My family has 4 members: Mom, dad, brother, me.  My parents had friends with the same family structure: Mom, dad, older brother, younger sister.  So the mom's are like corresponding parts, as are the dads, and the brothers, and the sisters.  We were all the same ages too, making us congruent.  But we could be different ages and still be corresponding.
If you had a 3-4-5 and 6-8-10 triangle, the 3 and 6 side correspond.  Even though they are not congruent, they are both the smallest side of their triangle so they match up.

The corresponding part of an object is something that stands in relation to a part of another object. As we all know that a concept can be better understood when it is used in context, given here is a sentence that can better illustrate the word: A change in the supply of money can bring a corresponding change in the expense. In the abovementioned sentence the 'supply of money and the 'expense' are the corresponding parts of one idea.

Mentioned here are some other sentences that can help you in grasping the meaning the term: 1) You must give each of the pictures a number corresponding to the position it holds on the page. 2) The big boys lost to the fat boys in the corresponding game last year. In the first sentence the pictures and their positions on the page are corresponding parts of one idea and in the same way the games being organised in both the years are corresponding parts of one idea.
