Is there no intuition behind these matrices so that I can remember it (the intuition) and then from it produce the wanted matrix?

To me the matrices look like some kind of cross product between a position vector and the derivative of that position vector but in polar coordinates.

But in 3 dimensions the row with the zeros and the single 1 changes depending on which axis the rotation is about and the order matters...

I hope you understand the way I wrote this, not sure how to type the matrices on here.

Once again, the reason I'm asking is because I don't want to just remember a couple of trigonometric matrices but rather a method or intuition from which I can produce the desired matrix depending on the kind of rotation I'm looking for.

Thanks!
