Math Worksheets


Note: You MUST have an Adobe product installed on your computer to ensure that the site will work for you.

When you click on the button and the worksheet does not show up in your browser, you will need to make sure that you have Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer, and that you are able to open and view PDF files.

1) If you do not have one of the Adobe products installed on your computer please click here for the Free Adobe Reader   and follow the instructions for download and installation on your computer.
2) After installing the Adobe software please verify that you can open and view a PDF file by viewing this PDF Times Table Chart.
3) If you are NOT using Firefox go to step 4.
If you ARE using the Firefox browser you will need to make sure that you are using the most current version of the browser, and your default PDF reader is the Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox). Now open your Firefox browser and click on the menu option icon (three parallel line in the upper right of the browser) and select the Options icon. Now click on the Applications tab and look for under the "Content Type" and under the "Action" column select "Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox)" then press "OK". Now to check to see if you are running the most current version of Firefox, select Help and then About Firefox. A dialog window will pop up. The first line in the box to the right of the logo will be Firefox, under that the version number, and the next line should say "Firefox is up to date". If not you may press the update button and the browser will update automatically and reboot. Now continue on the next step.
4) Now when you click the button it should generate and display the worksheets in your browser.
5) If you are still having problems, there are two different printing problems that are based on the browser you are using. Please read the following cases and pick the one that best fits your problem, then check the colored box that is right below the Create It button that matches your case. Do not check both boxes at the same time.

a)   If the Worksheet is displaying weird characters in your browser, or tries to open the PDF with a .pl file extension then check the Orange Box.

b)   If the PDF Viewer Page is loading fine but the Worksheet is not being displayed in the viewing area at all, then please check the Blue Box.

6) Now click the button again.

If you are still experiencing problems and you are using the Firefox browser seriously consider down loading the Google Chrome Browser, 99% of all the problems reported here are due to people using the Firefox browser. The Google Chrome Browser works best with this website.

Adobe also has a great help site that can assist you in solving most printer / PDF printing problems. Here is the link to that site: Adobe's Printer Help Site. The quick fix link on that site is a good place to start.
7) If you are still stuck then please send us an email telling us the Browser, Operating System, and a detailed description of what is happening with your browser once you press the Create It button, and we will help you with your issue.
