Intro to vector graphics and transformation matrices

This lesson is under construction

This lesson introduces students to the following through the construction of a simple vector graphics systems that implement affine transformations
  • Representation of connected 2d shape as concatenation of vectors  
  • Dilation & contraction along one or two axis
  • Mirroring along one or two axis
  • Transposition along one or two axis
  • Representing above operations by projection using basis vectors
  • Projection using basis vectors as linear operations; how matrices provide 'natural' representation
  • Rotation using basis vectors
  • Non-invertable systems
