Why is time a scalar?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Sb says time is scalar because under two different FRAMES, t and t' are the same (for describing the same event?). However, if one frame is moving to the other, how can this be generally true? Isn't time RELATIVE in physicists' eyes? Therefore, " time is a scalar" is ONLY AN ASSUMPTION? I mixed mathematics and physics?
