Series 5: Shear T-E-S (A)

The movies for this task show a shear transformation being applied to the letter T (the second movie includes TRACE-lines for key points).
Students are asked to find the invariant line and the scale factor for the shear.
A second task (B) in this series, again supported by QuickTime movies, asks students to apply the shear to the letters E and S.
