Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 1
By Classical Conversations
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Strengthen your brain by memorizing quality content with art and song in a beautiful, interactive format in six subject areas. New features include enhanced graphics and interactivity, Classical Conversations® Classical Acts & Facts Timeline, and U.S. presidents!
Classical educators know the importance of memorizing the grammar⎯the basic facts and vocabulary⎯of a subject. Now you can memorize the foundational knowledge of seven topics in a fun, interactive iPad application.
In Cycle 1, Classical Conversations students memorize 161 events and people in the timeline, including the U.S. presidents; 24 history sentences from ancient and world history; 24 sites or features of Africa and world geography; 24 science questions and answers on biology and earth science; multiplication tables (1 through 15), squares, roots, cubes, and basic math laws and conversions; Latin noun endings; and English grammar rules.
Ancient and world history is presented in an interactive application with songs and artwork designed to make memorizing enjoyable.
In addition, each history sentence links to a History Highlight, and each science question links to a Science Snippet; these are helpful teaching tools for classical educators and will expand your memory work in depth and breadth.
No matter your age, you can build a firm foundation of knowledge by memorizing these building blocks of education.
Classical Conversations students, ages 4 through 12, have been using these tools in our online subscription service, CC Connected. The new iPad application offers these additional features:
• Touch screen slides horizontally to reveal memory work by subject
• Touch screen slides vertically to study each subject by week
• Touch screen allows students to slide back and forth through the U.S. presidents
• Navigates back and forth and home easily
Classical Conversations® empowers homeschooling parents and establishes classical, Christian communities that equip children with a biblical worldview and the classical tools of learning in order to impact the world for God’s glory.

What's New in Version 1.10
An update for some minor fixes.
Loving the app! Can't recommend it enough to anyone who is considering it! I love that now review can happen anywhere anytime regardless of internet connection, and no more hauling Instructor's Guide everywhere. Not to mention the thing is smart - no constant having to tell it which week you're in. As soon as you pick a specific week, all other subjects default to that week, unlike CC connected, which makes you manually change each time (annoying). The presidents at the very end (week 24) are just too cool! The kids especially love that part. The visuals are awesome - just like having all of your cards in front of you. I believe this app is really going to help with learning/memory work in our life! Oh, the 2 CONS for this app are: No Timeline song & No Preposition song. I'm not surprised since the Timeline song is 15 mins long, but the prep song would be nice, and hopefully CC will update w/the both songs before long...
Needs more timeline info, but we still love it!
I think this app is great, but it NEEDS the information that is on the back of the timeline cards. The song would be nice too, but not necessary as I play it from the iPad anyway. I like the "snippets" that are on the science & history. The science "snippets" are mostly the back of the card and the history "snippets" are some additional information, which we love!
The preposition song would be a huge plus, but again not necessary as we play it from the iPad anyway.
I agree the app is pricey, but I think we'll worth it, especially if they fix the timeline and give us the back of the card info. It has all the memory work, which we used to bring cards and photo copies and geography tables in a small bag to places. now I just toss the iPad into the back seat or at a restaurant and have the kids review!
I would like a more interactive app, but that is an entirely different thing. This is all the memory work, not games for the kids!
It's good, but could be better
This is a great app for review or if I need my older two to go over their memory work while I am busy with something else. It's also great for in the car. My only problem is that it needs to have all the stuff that is on the cds. My kids love using this app. The other issue is that the info in the app needs to match that of the cds and book. There were only a few spots where that happened, but it surprised me when my 8 year old picked it out. Please add the songs (all of them) and add some quizzing. The kids would really benefit from that.
