The Relativity on Rotated Graph Paper Model displays Minkowski spacetime diagrams on rotated graph paper. The worldlines of three inertial observers carrying horizontal light clocks and the resulting clock ticks are drawn. Each clock consists of two mirrors a constant distance d away from an observer. The world lines of the clock's light rays form causal diamonds that can be used to count the clock ticks for each observer. A second window shows the causal diamonds in a second (other) reference frame.
