As an important issue in special relativity, Wigner rotation is notoriously difficult for beginners for two major reasons: this physical phenomenon is highly unintuitive, and the mathematics behind it can be extremely challenging. To remove the first obstacle, we introduce a clear and easy toy model under the guidance of group theory. To overcome the second, a concise mathematical method is developed by the integration of geometric algebra and active-frame formalism.
