Today, after a CCSS math department meeting, a teacher wanted to know how to make Word document files into PDF files and ultimately uploaded to Google Drive. This will allow for the document to be placed on a blog. The main reason for this is that most math teachers have used Microsoft Equation Editor which doesn't play nicely when uploaded to Google Drive.
So here are the steps to convert a Microsoft Word Document to pdf.
- Visit CutePDF Writer Website for Free Download
- Once downloaded and installed the option for changing a Word Document to a PDF will be in the File>Print options of the Microsoft Word document.
- Choose this option, and save it to your desired folder or location.
- Upload the PDF to Google Drive
A somewhat lengthy process, but one that allows for a Word document filled with Equation Editor math problems to be shared with students on a blog or website.
By the way, the entire time I was teaching the teacher how to do this I remembered my philosophy. Having a slogan, theme, and/or philosophy makes the job of teaching so much easier!
