Curriculum

Course Catalog and Learning Skills

Fishburne approaches the teaching of Learning Skills as an integral part of the Academic Program. We have found that students learn and apply “learning techniques and strategies” more readily if he sees an immediate and useful application for these skills. To accomplish this objective, Learning Skills are taught within the context of regular classes.

Information on Proficiency Based Math (ALEKS).

ALEKS is an online tutoring and assessment program that includes course material in mathematics, chemistry, introductory statistics, and business. Rather than being based on numerical test scores, ALEKS uses the theory of knowledge spaces to develop a combinatorial understanding of the set of topics a student does or doesn’t understand from the answers to its test questions. Based on this assessment, it determines the topics that the student is ready to learn and allows the student to choose from interactive learning modules for these topics.
