Video Transcript: Geometry Applications: Transformations

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: In this program we look at applications of transformations. We do this in the context of three real-world applications. In the first, we look at translations and rotations in the context of roller coaster rides. In the second example we look at translations in three-dimensional space in the context of cargo ships. In the third example, we look at the design of observatories to look at rotations, reflections, and symmetry.
