Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 3
Now updated for the Fifth Edition of the Foundations Curriculum!
Strengthen your brain by memorizing quality content with art and song in a beautiful, interactive format in seven subject areas. New features include enhanced graphics and interactivity, Classical Conversations® Classical Acts & Facts® timeline, and the 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 and iPhone application.
In Cycle 3, Classical Conversations students memorize 161 events and people in the timeline, including the U.S. presidents; 24 U.S. history sentences, including the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights; 120 locations and geographical features in North America (emphasis, the United States); 24 science questions and answers on anatomy and chemistry; multiplication tables (1 through 15), squares, roots, cubes, and basic math laws and conversions; Latin rules and vocabulary, including the text of John 1:1-7 in Latin and English; and English grammar facts, including the principal parts of eleven irregular verbs. This app corresponds to the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition, released in 2018.
U.S. history is presented in an interactive application with songs and artwork designed to make memorizing enjoyable.
Now integrated with other Classical Conversations resources, each history sentence and science question points you to the corresponding Classical Acts & Facts® card, handy flashcards for classical educators that 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 Foundations students, ages four through twelve, have been using these same tools in our iOS apps and online subscription service, CC Connected®. The new iOS application offers these 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
Great but could improve
The app is great but there are a few improvements that should be made. I would love to be able to set parental settings so my child doesn’t skip ahead the weeks. He likes to scroll them in the car and then recites them in CC class. The tutor prefers he not learn the material for future weeks ahead of time. It’s hard to control him from learning when I’m driving and he’s got the iPad in the back. I know right? What a wonderful problem to have... I can’t stop my kid from learning ahead, ha! First world problems, but still.
Also, it would be nice to have the timeline song and maybe even a study tracker...something that parents could use to track what days we went over material or see how many times we looked at one subject vs. others. Something to track and analyze CC study habits. Other apps do this already, it shouldn’t be difficult to add to this app.
I also liked the other reviewers idea of adding games or quizzes to test the knowledge. That would be wonderful!
Thank you to the developers at CC for making this app. It’s great! Yes, it’s pricey but you’re paying for the work it took to make this and for making life easier to teach with this app. Though I wish there was a discount for having bought all 3 apps. :)
I purchased this app recently and I think it was very well done! The graphics are amazing and the layout is user friendly. I think the purpose of this app is for the kids to be able to review their memory work independently, which it does accomplish this. We are very happy with this purchase. My son says it is "awesome," so that makes me very happy. I don't know if this is true, but I think it may be more on the pricey side because of all the copyrighted material it contains. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think it would be neat if it included little games or "tests" that the kids could use to make a challenge for them. Otherwise, the app is another way for us to enjoy CC and reinforce what they are learning.
Ability to navigate individual songs NEEDED
PLEASE, give this app the ability to slide forward or backward through a song when reviewing memory work. I know this has been asked for since the first release of this app (all cycles). This is IMPERATIVE to memory work, both in the class and at home.
We also ask for you to include the timeline SONG in its entirety with the same slide navigation ability. It’s included when you buy the CD’s, but not the app. That is not logical. With so many of us on our phones today as we travel, sit in drs appts or other waiting rooms, etc, it would give the parents and students greater access to the whole content when they need it most.
