ab: From the introduction: This article uses concepts from a standard
third-semester calculus course to allow the student to perform
reflections through planes and rotations about lines in space. The
approach we take uses familiar ideas such as lines and planes, the dot
product of vectors, components and projections and the distance between
points in space.
