Researchers typically use four dimensional vectors in Minkowski space-time to derive Albert Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity equations. In this work, I have created an original method that uses only scalar quantities in the derivation of relativity equations. The Conjugate Frame Method reproduces the time, mass, and length equations of Special Relativity. Equations for the relativistic electric charge and relativistic temperature are also derived using this method. Unlike the equations of Special Relativity, the Conjugate Frame Method Relativity equations are applicable to both inertial and non-inertial reference frames. The creation of the Conjugate Frame Method was motivated by work done in real quaternion relativity [1,2].
