Desktop/Laptop Computer Tour
Welcome to the Math-Drills.com tour! This tour will orient you quickly to the Math-Drills.com website, so you can start printing or viewing free math worksheets as quickly as possible.
Step 1: Choose a Category or Topic
Every page includes some helpful navigation links: the Home, Topics, and Search links, the drop-down page selector and the right sidebar. Clicking the "Home" link will bring you to the home page. Clicking the "Topics" link will bring you to the Categories and Topics menu on the home page. The drop-down menu is especially useful on mobile devices for navigating between pages. The right sidebar links to all of the main pages. Choose a category or topic to start.
Step 2: Choose a Topic
If you select a topic directly from the Categories and Topics list on the home page, you can skip to the next step. If you select a category from the drop-down menu, the right sidebar or the topics list, you will end up at the top of a category page. Most category pages include a topic drop-down menu in the header area of the page. The image below shows the topics drop-down list open on the Understanding Fractions Workshets page. Click on a topic or scroll down to browse through all of the topics and worksheets.
Step 3: Choose a Worksheet
Click on the name of the worksheet on the left or one of the letters (different versions) on the right and a worksheet page will open. Pictured below is a topic from the Understanding Fractions page. Worksheets that you have previously viewed will have a light blue background.
Step 4: Print or Save the Worksheet
How to print a worksheet depends on the browser you use. To print the worksheet, try "right-clicking" on the pdf preview on the right and selecting the print option. You can also use the print icon in the menu at the top or bottom of the worksheet window. You can use the same process for saving a worksheet to your computer.
The image below shows Internet Explorer using the Adobe Reader plug-in. The menu bar appears at the top of the worksheet window when your mouse cursor moves over the worksheet.
The image below shows the Chrome browser's built-in pdf menu. It appears at the bottom right of the worksheet window.
The image below shows the Firefox browser's built-in pdf menu. It appears at the top of the worksheet window. In Firefox, you are not given a choice to print when you right-click. Firefox also seems to have some compatibility and quality issues with pdf files, so we recommend disabling the Firefox pdf reader and using the Adobe reader plug-in instead.
Step 5: Other Tips
If you want to open multiple math worksheets from the same section, hold down the Ctrl key and click away. The worksheet pages will open in separate tabs.
You can increase the visibility of our fonts by holding down the Ctrl key and spinning your mouse wheel. This will zoom in and out of the page. Our pages are designed so you never have to scroll sideways; everything will just fit.
