Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 1
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.

Great resource for CC lite
I know several families who participate in CC and am always impressed with all that they are learning. I am not quite ready to join, as it is quite pricey compared to what I now pay just homeschooling on our own at home. However, I was happy to buy this app in order to access the basic curriculum to keep my kids somewhat abreast in case we join when they are older (which we plan to do). We have completed all 24 weeks, and I have been impressed with the content, layout, songs, ease of use, etc. My 9 yr old and 7 yr old are able to use this on their own, though I do it with them once a week to see what they are learning. I plan to buy the next app after Christmas. My only regret is that the app isn't available for Kindle Fire, as those devices are dramatically cheaper than apple products.
Some Use, But Overpriced
I agree completely with Sadiecpt that it is overpriced and falls spectacularly short of the potential it has. Yes, it makes it easy for your student to review the material independently by paging through the memory work, and the songs for math, grammar, history sentence and latin are there. So why no Timeline song? For the price and because it would make the most of the media, I would have expected to have not only the timeline song, but also the timeline card information. It would've been so convenient to have that in the app. Interactive map practice? It could have been a reality, but you can only watch and listen to the narrator as the map is labeled. Just so much potential for interactive learning that is absent and too expensive for what you get. It leaves so much room for you to need to buy other expensive things such as the audio CD or a CC connected subscription to get the Timeline song, or a nearly hundred dollar set of history cards to get THAT information.
I'm shocked and blown away at all the negative feedback on this app. Sure it would be nice if they added the timeline song however then the app would have everything you need and almost replace the book and other resources. It's wisdom that they don't allow just anyone to purchase an app that includes everything. That said. I love the apps, they are visual and work beautifully. My kids love them and it allows for easy visual and auditory review that doesn't require parental assistance. It's a wonderful app and I think it's worth every penny. Love it totally recommend!
