​Course: Statistics

Statistics is a mathematics course that uses meaningful problems and appropriate technologies to use statistical concepts developed in previous courses to develop means of statistical analyses, interpretations and predictions.

Taught by Mr. Ballard.


Course: D.E. Statistics

Statistics is an advanced mathematics course that uses meaningful problems and appropriate technologies to use statistical concepts developed in previous courses to develop more advanced means of statistical analyses, interpretations and predictions.

Taught by Mrs. Sigette.


Course: Bridge Math

Bridge math is designed for seniors who have an ACT score below 19. this course will resist concepts previously studied in a new approach; make connections and allow for a more in-depth understanding of topics supporting the foundation for problem solving applications, and understanding application through contextual problem based inquiry.

Taught by Mr. Boeck.


Course: D.E. Calculus

D.E. Calculus is an advanced mathematics course that uses meaningful problems and appropriate technology to develop concepts and applications related to continuity and discontinuity of functions and differentiation, and integration. The dual enrollment course will use a curriculum based upon the curriculum of the state of Tennessee and the guidelines of the College Board.

​​Taught by Mrs. Sigette.


Course: A.P. Calculus

AP Calculus is an advanced mathematics course that uses meaningful problems and appropriate technology to develop concepts and applications related to continuity and discontinuity of functions and differentiation, and integration. The advanced placement course will use a curriculum based upon the curriculum of the state of Tennessee and the guidelines of the College Board. Students who are eligible for fee waivers with the school system may be eligible for a fee waiver on the AP exam through the AP Program.

Taught by Mrs. Clingan

Course: AP Computer Science

Beginning programming class will serve as a 4 th year math.  Ideal for students that are not candidates for SAILS with a desire to hone their logical, sequential thinking skills with limited mathematical work.

​​Taught by Mr. Ballard.


Course: Coding 1

Coding I is an introductory course intended to teach students the basics of computer programming. It is an interactive introductory course for students brand new to programming that teaches the foundations of computer science using the Python language. Not only will this course prepare students for AP Computer Science Principles and/or AP Computer Science A, but it will teach students how to think computationally and solve complex problems, skills that are important for every student. This introduction to computer science course is a great starting point for a student new computer science.

Taught by Mr. Ballard


Course: AP Computer Science A

AP Computer Science A is a programming class in Java, a popular in-demand programming language. Java is used to build server-side applications, games, and financial applications, and is the core foundation for developing Android apps. Students will be introduced to topics that include problem-solving, design strategies and methodologies, organization of data (data structure), approaches to processing data (algorithms), analysis of potential solutions, and the ethical and social implications of computing

Taught by Mr. Ballard


Course:AP Computer Science Principles

AP Computer Science Principles is an introductory class to computer science with a focus on computational thinking and the tools needed to analyze, study, and work with large data sets to draw conclusions from trends. This course is interdisciplinary as students explore how computer software and other technology can be used to solve problems. It will focus on the ethical implications of technology alongside the mechanical components. The Computer Science Principles curriculum is an entry-level course that introduces high school students to the foundations of modern computing. The course covers a broad range of foundational topics such as programming and coding (in both Python and JavaScript), algorithms, Internet protocols, big data, digital privacy and security, and the societal impacts of computing.

Taught by Mr. Ballard
Course: DE College Algebra and Elementary Functions (Math 140)

Selected topics from algebra including functions (e.g., polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic). zeroes of polynomials, solutions of systems of equations and inequalities and matrices.

​​Taught by Mrs. Sigette. ​​
