"PDF" stands for "Portable Document Format." This technology, developed by Adobe, allows you to download and print out forms, classroom handouts, and assignment sheets on your home printer, regardless of what computer program was used to create the handout!
To do this, you will need to download and install the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader. This is a small plug in that will allow you to use your browser to read and print .pdf files. MOST LIKELY, you already have this installed in your system -- it is used by many companies to read the electronic help manuals that they include with newer computer programs.
