Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 1
Strengthen your brain by memorizing quality content with art and song in a beautiful, interactive format in seven subject areas. 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 and iPhone 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. This app corresponds to the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition, released in 2018.
Ancient and world 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 4 through 12, have been using these tools in our online subscription service, CC Connected®. The 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.

Since the update in Dec the app won’t close on my iPhone Max. I have To restart my phone to turn the app off! The app support link just sends me to the main CC website so it’s no help.
How dare you say that stuff. The cc app is amazing! That’s all I have to say
This rating is only on the usability of the app, not the material content. We’ve been a part of a CC community for 5 years and I love the curriculum. But the app has much to be desired. I purchased the app this year for the first time since I only listen to music from my phone. It continually shuts down on me during the history songs and I then have to start over from the beginning. Also, it would be nice if you could play an entire week or subject at a time, without having to hit play after each subject and week. It’s very difficult for me to review with the kids in the car, which was the number one reason I purchased it. Overall, I am very disappointed in the functionality of this app.
It doesn’t have the timeline song on the app. Also I wish it would have a continual run thru. It would be nice if I could just play the week or the subject continually. You have to swipe to go to the next subject or week every time.
Last year’s app was great but this one cuts out every time we use it.
Like everything else CC does its overpriced and under delivers. How about some quizzing abilities? It would be great if you could drag geography names onto the places, or say I’d like to work on weeks 1-6. How about scrambled time line cards you have to put in order? Why am I doing all this for you? A lot of us spend more time in our cars than we’d like, we can’t carry all our timeline cards with us everywhere we go. I was hoping this app would help. It’s a lame over priced app.
I like the app. It has all the songs plus the visuals.
This app is already limited with material and lacking flexibility of an auto play feature. The Science Snippets and History Highlights are sorely missed. Our family would cast the app onto our TV so we could all view the screen together and read this information. This is the most expensive app I’ve ever purchased and I do so because I tutor and my kids use to it prepare for memory master. We use it quite a lot however is this bare bones and a no frills app. Usually updates include MORE features, not less!
I’ve had this app for several years. I was happy to see that when the curriculum updated from 4th edition to 5th edition i didn’t need to pay for the app again. My kindergartener uses this to review while I’m working with one on one in other subjects with my older child.
If you understand Classical Conversations and you follow the classical model for home education, then this app will be very useful. My kids use it daily to review their memory work.
I love this app! It is a perfect way to review when out and about or at home. You can even access the "Science Snippets" and "History Highlights!"
I was so disappointed with this app, I was under the WRONG impression that this was an interactive app but it is in fact just the CC music CD set to pictures! Not worth the $15.99 so disappointed looking to try and get a refund ... I have only had it for 15 minutes!
I know several families who participate in CC and am always impressed with all that they are learning. I am not quite ready to join, as it is quite pricey compared to what I now pay just homeschooling on our own at home. However, I was happy to buy this app in order to access the basic curriculum to keep my kids somewhat abreast in case we join when they are older (which we plan to do). We have completed all 24 weeks, and I have been impressed with the content, layout, songs, ease of use, etc. My 9 yr old and 7 yr old are able to use this on their own, though I do it with them once a week to see what they are learning. I plan to buy the next app after Christmas. My only regret is that the app isn't available for Kindle Fire, as those devices are dramatically cheaper than apple products.
I agree with the others. This app only goes over what was learned. I expected a lot more. It's the most expensive app I ever bought - no review games and only a few with music. I think I'd like a refund.
I am a tutor and have used the apps for 2 consecutive cycles. They have been helpful as I prepare to tutor my class, and helpful at home. BUT... I've noticed that it never seems to be updated. There are geographical errors on the maps that CC is aware of, yet they have not corrected them. For the money I paid, I expected an educational app that is functional AND correct. If errors were corrected, I'd give it a higher rating. (More songs wouldn't hurt, either)
With very few songs, (not the Timeline Song,) an awkward, unsophisticated layout, and a lack of extras that might have made this app worth even half the amount CC charges for it, I feel that this company should feel embarrassed to produce something so substandard and charge so much money for it. 16 dollars for one of three apps? I paid already for the book- why not include this? Classical Conversations has a bad habit of overcharging for underwhelming curriculum. I was hoping to have my children use this app without my help, but that will not be possible.
I love having all our memory work at my fingertips. We use this app twice a day for a quick review - once in the morning and once before bed.
I hesitated to buy this app based on negative reviews found here. I'm glad I asked a friend and learned that it's actually a great resource. It DOES contain songs. Maybe not every song found on the CD's but it definitely has the songs I need for my kindergartner. I'm so glad I purchased this rather than the CD's. Great interactive resource for my daughter and me.
The only reason I bought this app was so that I could play it in the car through our USB port. It will NOT play. I tried multiple phones, devices and other apps to make sure something had not shorted out in our suburban. It is the app. It does not play. PLEASE whoever updates this app give it an update. I'm upset that I spent $15 on something that doesn't work for the primary purpose that I needed it.
