    How do I print the activities so they fill up the page. I printed a page and it is so small.

    If you click on the document or pdf links below the image, you should get the full sized activity rather than the preview. The doc (or odt) should allow you to edit the activity, while the pdf version views more consistently among different comuputers, but does not allow for editing.

    Throughout this great pattern of thigns you’ll secure an A for effort and hard work. Where exactly you confused me personally was first in the particulars. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me say to you precisely what did work. The authoring can be quite engaging which is probably why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, despite the fact that I can see the leaps in reason you make, I am definitely not certain of how you appear to unite your ideas which in turn make the conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your position however trust in the foreseeable future you actually link the facts better.
