Mrs. Oppenheimer's Class

Welcome to Mrs. Oppenheimer's class!  Some of you with older siblings may know me as Ms. Shoaf.  I just celebrated a year of marriage to a wonderful man.  We are now expecting our first child due in December.  I am a Starmount graduate and have been working in the Yadkin County School system since 2004.  I taught in Wilkes County before that and have also taught a year in Peru.  I enjoying basketball, football, softball/baseball, volleyball, and most any other sport.  NC State is my favorite college team, and I like the Washington Redskins, New York Yankees, and Atlanta Braves.  I also enjoy reading, being outside, and Reese's Cups.

Here you will find all the information you will need for class.  I will post for you important quiz and test dates.  Please check the website several times each week.

Math Standards
We will be doing something different from the spiraling technique this year.  Some of your older siblings may remember that we used the spiraling technique in the last three years where we would touch on each of the five standards each quarter.  The five standards are:
    1.  Number Systems
    2.  Expressions and Equations
    3.  Functions
    4.  Geometry
    5.  Statistics and Probability
This year, we will be trying something different.  In the first quarter, we will be working on the following:
  • Transformations - Translations, Reflections, Rotations, and Dilations
  • Special Angle Pairs
  • Equations
  • Word Phrases to Equations
  • Exterior Angles of a Triangle

Class Expectations
Treat others with respect.
Give your best, always willing to try.
Ask questions.
Be responsible.

I look forward to working with you and hope to have a great year!
