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.

  • The Pros and Cons

    All the foundations information is there and a little bit more (or less) depending on how you look at it. I bought this over the Audio CDs for few reasons: 1)because it's more mobile, 2) it has visuals for my kids, and 3) I thought it would have all the information the Audio CDs did. I LOVE the science snippets to give a little more info on the answer to the science question. The history highlights are so great, giving good background history and extending the information. I also love the visuals that go with each slide, it helps a ton to keep my kids interested. With that said there could be some improvements in my opinion. I find it's lacking these two items. -the timeline song -the states and capitols song. Hope this can be updated!
  • Needs to include the Timeline song!

    My kids were so disappointed when we spent $16 on the app and it doesn't even include the timeline song! They couldn't wait and then it's not even on the app. The rest of the features aren't bad. But I guess next time it'll teach me to read reviews before spending to much on an app!! The pice is too high not to have the timeline song. You guys should really do an update and include it!!!!! Especially since you're charging people so much to download your app. Very disappointing.
  • Great app

    It's a nice app and my children are learning cc material quicker but it is expensive and it is lacking the timeline song in the presidents so it is lacking President Trump and it cannot be played in the background it would be nice if it was more interactive like a game
  • Not as expected

    I was told this was a great tool to use in place of the more expensive CDs, but I am disappointed I have spent $16 on this. The States song and the Timeline song are not available on here! You have to physically tap a button for each subject's lesson, so there is no option to just "let it play in the background," as has been suggested to me. The President song is here but ends with Obama… obviously an update to include Trump has not been thought of in 8 months! I wish there was an option to listen to all of each weeks lessons in a row, or even play one subject's lessons from week 1 on for review. For such an expensive app I expected more options and the main songs! I don't feel like this app is sufficient to replace any of the materials CC requires. Which further prompts me to ask- are we being taken advantage of with the requirements to purchase so many expensive materials? Please update.

    Our boys love the interactivity, it is so intuitive for them. The app allows us to review material more quickly than online and more frequently so we have more time to dive into the material. The visuals are critical for subjects like geography where I find the animation better explains locations than 2-D maps. We would have ended last year stronger if we were able to use the app throughout the year over breaks. The app is so quick and easy! Over summer break we reviewed by subject and I really saw us fill in the gaps. Maybe you have to set up a passcode if you're concerned about non registered families, but it's worth the risk, think how CC is being introduced to families who may have never heard otherwise. Please, please, please put on the cycle 1 app soon. More Please! *****update***** I agree with other users: These apps are expensive for little interactivity and are the same as the online tutorial included with subscription Please UPDATE with changes like quizzes that keep track of mastery, include more songs like the timeline song weekly segments. My enthusiasm at first was merely in contrast to the desktop version. Please update and we will update our review! :)
  • Update Presidents Song

    Love it! I use it for tutoring my class sometimes for easy access to History songs. Just need to update the Presidents song on all three cycles to include 45th president. Pretty pleeeeeaaase!! :)
  • Love CC, not so much the app

    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.
  • Great for CC Families

    This is a useful tool for families that participate in CC. My kids use it daily to review memory work.
