Quick Reference

A transformation in which points move parallel to a fixed line or plane and move a distance proportional to their distance from the fixed line or plane. Areas and volumes are preserved under a shear transformation in two and three dimensions respectively, which transform rectangles into parallelograms and cuboids into parallelepipeds when the fixed line or plane is parallel to one of the sides.
