The user selects the entries in a 2 by 2 matrix, which may be any numbers between -5 and 5. The matrix is taken to be the standard matrix of a linear transformation. The application then shows an image of a capital F in the first quadrant in blue and its image under the tranformation in red. The application is easy to use and allows for quick experimentation with different matrices.

Simple but effective app that demonstrates the effect of a 2D linear transformation. Integer-valued matrices only are allowed.
