Finding the transformation matrix

We are always given the transformation matrix to transform shapes and vectors, but how do we actually give the transformation matrix in the first place? To do this, we must take a look at two unit vectors. With each unit vector, we will imagine how they will be transformed. Then take the two transformed vector, and merged them into a matrix. That matrix will be the transformation matrix. We will first examine the different types of transformations we will encounter, and then learn how to find the transformation matrix when given a graph.
