“New math” is tricky! Scott Disick is just like Us — miserably failing to explain complex mathematics assignments to his kids.
“In math class when I don’t know what’s going on and I come home and my dad knows less than what’s going on,” Penelope captioned a Friday, September 2, TikTok video with the Flip It Like Disick alum, 39.
In the social media footage, the 10-year-old — who Disick shares with ex Kourtney Kardashian along with sons Mason, 12, and Reign, 7 — and her dad teamed up while in the kitchen to lip-sync a viral audio clip that says, “I don’t what’s going on, and I simply don’t want to know.”
And I have no idea what’s going on in math class and I come home and my dad knows less
Penelope wore a peach-colored Care Bears shirt while holding a No. 2 pencil in one hand and pad of paper the other. Disick, for his part, went with a pink hoodie while attempting to work out one of her assignments using a pencil of his own.
While the elementary schooler — who shares her TikTok account with the 43-year-old Poosh founder — didn’t further elaborate on the arithmetic lesson that was difficult to comprehend, she is likely referring to a unit in Common Core math — a.k.a. “new math.” Starting in 2010, academic boards re-standardized how to teach children math in order to facilitate conceptual understanding for future real-world applications.
“All Scott talks about is his kids. … He’s always bringing them up in conversation when he’s not physically with them,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in December 2021. “He’s definitely a very good father and cares and loves them so much. … He wants to be a good role model to them.”
“The truth is, my problems shouldn’t affect the kids,” the New York native previously told Us in June 2019. “Just because their mother and I couldn’t make it as a perfect, romantic couple shouldn’t have anything to do with the kids. They don’t deserve our mistakes, so we figured out a way. We still need to be as honest and as good to each other as if we were together. Let’s raise these children together and that’s it.”
He continued: “We live a few miles apart and it’s simple. … The fact that we’ve tried and made it work makes life that much better. I couldn’t imagine raising three children with somebody I couldn’t speak to every day.”
