here's the relevant wiki article:
http://en.wikipedia....s_approximation
here's Schlick's original paper from 1994:

and if you're successful with implementing the Schlick method, then you may proceed to more advanced approximations:

so for you I think the fresnel term should be:
```//Fresnel approximation
float base = 1-dot(f_viewDirection, halfWay);
float exp = pow(base, 5);
float fresnel = fZero + (1 - fZero)*exp;
```
