Moving “up” and “down” are similar, but the roles of the first and second rows are exchanged. For instance, moving “up” will add the first row to the second row as in
while moving “down” subtracts the first row from the second row as in
One way to remember this is that right and left (the x-axis) affects the first row, while moving up and down (the y-axis) affects the second row. Right and up mean “add.”
What’s with the background?
The background displays the upper half plane transformed by the displayed matrix regarded as a linear fractional transformation.
