Geometry of Linear Transformations of the Plane

This webpage summarizes linear transformations of the plane by looking at the image of a unit square under various transformations. An interactive exploration and an online quiz are included (which appears to be available only to HMC students).

Concise, straightforward explanation of 2D linear transformations. Rotations, reflections, expansions/compressions, and shears are described algebraically and geometrically. An exploration in the form of a Java applet allows users to further test their understanding of the concepts. At the time of this review (2/3/2014), the online quiz appears to be restricted to HMC students.
