Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 2
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, 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 six subjects in a fun, interactive iPad application.
In Cycle 2, Classical Conversations Foundations students memorize 161 events and people in the timeline, including the U.S. presidents; 24 history sentences from medieval to modern world history; geographical features and countries of Europe and the world; 24 science questions and answers on ecology, astronomy, and physical science; multiplication tables (1 through 15), squares, roots, cubes, and basic math laws and conversions; Latin verb endings; and English grammar rules.
Medieval to modern 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 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 Foundations students, ages 4 through 12, have been using these same 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 easily back and forth and home
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.

Ratings and Reviews
We use it often, but it could improve
We love CC! We also use this app a lot for our review time. However, I dislike that the audio starts as soon as you choose your subject and week. I have to quickly hit pause if using it in class. I also dislike the fact that the app has not been updated with the new Presidents song. The song is available for free on CC connected, however it hasn't been updated on the app. Getting on CC connected requires having an internet connection and sometimes even then, the link doesn't work. So having the updated song on the app would be very helpful and would be easy to update the app with it. I do agree with the other reviewer when it comes to CC making $$ of selling new curriculum. It seems like CC should offer a trade in like IEW did! IEW was so generous when they updated their TWSS. I hope that when CC switches to the new foundations guide that they will update the apps also instead of creating new one and making us buy them over again. I don't mind the tuition costs, because I know it goes to paying the tutor, director, SR and so on.
Nice tool but falls short in key areas
The CC app is a nice tool to use on community days for review of individual topics and the content is pretty great. That said it is lacking a few crucial features and falls well short of being user friendly when used at home for review.
A few added features could make this app absolutely amazing! The best change that could be made to this app would be a repeat feature that would allow the user to loop/continuously play their choice of individual topics or an entire week without having to babysit the app. As it is now I have to constantly be on top of the button to hit play every 10 seconds.
Classical Conversations is great for homeschooling but this app falls well short of being user friendly when used at home.
Good, but needs auto-play feature
I like the app, and I like having it on my phone so we can practice memory work anywhere. I also own the CD's so we can play it in the car, but we only have a CD player in our play room so I can't play the CD everywhere. I wish the app had an "auto-play" option to play continuously through either subjects or weeks. That way it would just continue to play until you stopped playing. It gets expensive to buy the CD's (which we can just continue to play until we want to stop practicing) and the app.
