Excel spread sheets:

Deformation and strain deserve numbers, and calculating strain using the deformation matrix is easy with a spread sheet. Here are some that lets you calculate the eigenvectors,
eigenvalues, principal strain axes, strain ratio, kinematic vorticity, offset across a shear zone etc. of simple plane strain deformations. Change numbers in red only.
