Description

Classical Conversations® Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 1 Description: 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.

  • Just ok

    This app does have the basic information to help with the memory work but doesn’t include the songs. We only use the CDs in the car and I was hoping to find an app or mp3 version of the CDs to be able to listen in the in the house. I guess I have to buy a CD player :/
  • Would like the Update

    I’m new to see and I just purchased this APP today not knowing there will be a new APP coming soon! You guys should note that! I hope this one gets updated or else I would like a refund so I can purchase the new APP.

    Are we expecting an update for the app with the 5th edition changes? I bought the app a month ago and was surprised to see that it wasn’t updated.
  • Please Update

    Please update the App. Just purchased the new updated Foundations guide for 2018. Downloaded the Cycle 1 app for this fall and in Week 1- noticed that in Science - What are the classifications of living things? “domain” was missing.
  • Does not have the timeline song.

    What else can I say? This app needs to be updated with the new songs. And the math needs to have all the skip counting until 15.
  • Thought I was getting fun songs

    After a friend sang some catchy CC songs to me, I thought I'd buy the app and play them for my kids. These are old skip counting songs set to Sunday School tunes that I could find for free on youtube, not the catchy ones being used in the local CC classroom. I cannot find ANY other songs on the app, which was why I paid $15 for it, and my kids are bored to tears watching the not-so-fun flashcards. Waste of money. Put more songs on it!
  • Love CC, the app not so much

    The app is nice in that all the memory work it all there visually as well as songs (EXCEPT the timeline song which is pretty disappointing) but I'm already paying premium for the wonderful CC community and program. Why do they have to capitalize off everything? Timeline song or not $15.99 is unreasonable. I can understand 9.99 at most even but $15.99 just seems wrong.
  • A Great App that could be Awesome!

    My kids love this App, we use it every day and have cycle 2 also. This App could be even better especially for the price if it included both Presidents songs, the timeline song and if the features were more interactive. For example if after the Latin song had finished the student could touch the individual words to repeat them. Allowing them to hear the pronunciation of the specific word they are having trouble with. Also math, science and geography would benefit from the same application. Touching the place, number, or word again would result in the repetition of that place, number or word. The layout of the graphs, and maps could also utilize the free space of the IPad more efficiently resulting in less dead space and larger more visible images. A great App but with improvement could be a much better teaching aid. I hope a future update will include these features.
  • Way too much $$$$ for what it is

    It should be priced at $4.99 tops. There are a few pronunciation mistakes. The timeline song is not there- it is just spoken - they can certainly add the song weekly or have it separately. They need to step up the features for $15.99. Since it is just the cards and some of the information on CDs put in an app
