Geometric properties of matrices
- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
The determinant of a square matrix is a number that can be related to the area or volume of a region. In particular, the determinant of a matrix reflects how the linear transformation associated with the matrix can scale, rotate, shear or reflect objects (in this case a square of side 2 centred at the origin). Instructions:
- Change the numbers to define a new matrix T.
- Click on Apply Matrix to observe the transformation of the square.
