1.2: September 21-25, 2020

In nature, nothing is independent; all elements are interdependent, and contribute to solving the needs of the whole system.

Students: Please follow the daily lessons on Google Classroom for specific times and codes. It will take a couple weeks for you to master the schedule, please be patient, helpful to others, and try to be independent. Remember that it’s all about “kaizen”.
