. Bookmarking pages

You may wish to bookmark your eTeacher's Edition's "launch" page (the screen which shows the cover of your math book). By selecting this bookmarked page, you can access the eTeacher's Edition directly, without the need to navigate through additional Web pages.

Bookmarking individual pages of the eTeacher's Edition is not recommended, as it may create unexpected behavior on some browsers.

. Additional tips

  • If printable resources (such as Chapter Tests) take more then one page to print, you may need to adjust your printer's settings for margin or image size. Your Web browser may also provide for shrinking the printable page.
  • If a page does not load properly, use previous and next buttons to reload the page.
  • Disable your browser's pop-up blocking feature or any third-party pop-up blocking software that may be running. It may prevent the eTeacher's Edition from opening new windows for items selected from the Resources menu.
