Description

Classical Conversations® Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 3 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 3, Classical Conversations Foundations 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. U.S. 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 four through twelve, 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 Christ-centered worldview and the classical tools of learning in order to impact the world for God’s glory.

  • It’s OK but a little too expensive.

    I like most of the content on here, but there’s no timeline song… And I sure hope they update it soon with the fifth edition... I would really like to be able to review with my boys so they don’t forget anything!
  • App update

    Is this app going to be updated to match the 5th edition or are we going to have to buy another version of this too? Also, will the timeline song be added to these apps???
  • Great app!

    We used this app to keep up with memory work on the go. My child preferred using the app over manual flash cards, imagine that! So for reviewing previous weeks that she has already learned, this became our primary method of review combined with some quizzing randomly. FYI - Timeline song not included.

    I love the CC curriculum and especially the awesome community. I finally caved and got this app one day when we had a million errands and needed to do some kind of "school" for the day. It is seriously the most money I have ever spent on an app. Why must everything connected with this company be so ridiculously expensive??? Some of us struggle to be able to afford to do this with our kids. I'm very disappointed at what I get for $16. I thought there would be much more than just a review I have to flip through. And to top it off I have to drop another $32 to get the other cycles???? It seems greedy. Offer more or lower the price.
  • 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. :)
  • Needs a Visual Depiction of Memory Work

    I think the app desperately needs a visual list of memory work to accompany the videos. I just want to quiz the kids with my $16 app and can’t do it without playing and pausing the video. Also, please optimize the app for iPhone X.

    I like the extra visual effects that the app gives during review (especially in science). I wish it had the timeline song on it though.
  • Needs the Timeline and States/Capital songs!!

  • Mediocre

    I feel like for $16 dollar this falls really short! Like why does it just read the time line stuff for the week instead of reading and singing. Same with the states. I also wish that we could hit play once we pick our week and it would play everything from that week. This is a $4 dollar app for $16
  • Nice to have on the go, but missing the songs

    I appreciate having all of our cycle 3 memory work available to us wherever we go, but for such a pricey app, I would really expect for it to include the Timeline songs.
