## Key Questions

Rotating any plane figure is equivalent to rotating the entire plane with the axes moving through a given angle either clockwise or anticlockwise.

In 3 dimensions, this also means rotating the z-axis through an angle.

#### Explanation:

It usually means to rotate it around the origin or in the plane around some point designated as an origin.

In the following applet, I show how to rotate any plane curve and demonstrate the rotation matrix in 2D:

• This key question hasn't been answered yet.
• To rotate any geometric object means the same thing:

Rotate the axes and the object will be affected by the rotation.
