Animating Transformations

This page provides a demonstration to help students visualize transformations and mappings used to move (rotating, reflecting, translating), resize (contracting, expanding), and reshape (shearing, projecting) objects in the plane.  Software supported by Matlab, LiveMath, and Excel can be used to animate the effect of applying various transofrmations to different shapes.  The material can be used by students as a self-guided deomonstration, or it can be used by instructors in lecture.  The prerequisites are modest, with only an introduction to transformations needed.  The page includes recommendations for how these materials can be used in a course.
