Hello, I recently purchased the earthquake worksheet set. The quality is very blurry. I used Adobe Reader and the quality still is insufficient for use. Is there any way to get what I bought in a clearer format? Thanks,

Buyer re: Plate Tectonics Wordsearch with Key
Hi, I didn't want to leave any bad comments. I just wanted to let you know I downloaded a "not so good quality' wordsearch. Just wondering if you could email me a better one to cbusta@suddenlink.net. If not I'll just take the .50 loss but I just wanted to be fair and let you know.

Thank You

Buyer re: 9 Great White Shark Worksheets In One Puzzle Pack
I purchased your Shark pack and the print is very fuzzy and very, very difficult to read. The PDF looks like a scan that has been copied several times, not a scan of an original document. Is there any way to get a clear copy before I rate your product?

Buyer re: The Elegant Universe Worksheet Set with Keys
I just down loaded your files for The Elegant Universe. When I printed it out it was very blurry. It is not usable in the current state. Is there any way to get a better scan? The material seems very good, I just need a better copy. I will be teaching physics next semester and I would love to use it.

Dear Maura and Derrick,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

I've been trying to download the preview but it won't work... I am really interested in this product, but I don't want to pay $20 for something when I have no idea of the quality. Is there anything you can do so that I can successfully see what the product looks like? Thanks!

It's a zip so no preview, but every individual worksheet in the workbook is sold separately and they do have previews. This workbook is probably my best selling product and I have never had a complaint on it. I guarantee you'll be satisfied.

It's a pdf so maybe not. I've never done it online. Depending on what software you have it should be simple to translate the file so you can edit it. I know I could do it with photoshop.

Hi Derrick, My name is Larry Coty, and I am with a company called USA Testprep, Inc. We provide online reviews for end-of-course tests, High School graduation tests, CRCTs, etc. in nearly 20 states (and growing). I have purchased several of your products, and I am interested in knowing whether you would consider explicitly granting us license to use them and more (in edited form) on our site. If we did so use them, they would become available to subscribers to our site, accessed by teachers at the moment the students are practicing the content they deal with. They would not be made widely or freely available, and there would be no connection to you as the original author. If you are interested in this arrangement, please let me know. I can also be reached directly by email at larry@usatestprep.com, or call Jay at 1.877.377.9537, ext 103, and he will forward to me. Best regards, ==Larry

The products sold at TPT are for classroom use. If you're asking to resell the products purchased at TPT, absolutely not. They are not for resale. If you're proposing something else, you need to clarify what that is.

Buyer re: 4 Worksheet Ecology Puzzle Set with Answer Keys
I recently purchased this item and it will not print out correctly. I was able to open it, but it all printed on one page in a microscopic print! Is there anyway you can send it to me in a different format? Thank you, Sherri Bateh stbateh@hotmail.com

Since some of my products were created with an older pdf creator, page breaks were not automatically inserted. However, there is an easy fix. Simply resize the worksheet page you want to print so that the whole worksheet page shows on your computer screen and then use the print 'current view' command in your print menu. That's it! And as I said earlier, if there are any specific science subjects you'd like to see in my worksheet formats, let me know!

Derrick - which study guide goes along with your WAVES power point?

Also - do you have a power point on electromagnetic waves?

Thank you

Maura & Derrick Neill
Maura & Derrick Neill  (TpT Seller)
Hi, it should be the Waves worksheet, that is a vocabulary sheet, not the crossword, or matching pair puzzle. It will be under the name Maura Bostwick Neill, Derrick's wife. I do have a powerpoint, but haven't offered it for sale as not all the images are mine. I am trying not to break copyright laws by using other folks images, as I see a lot of teachers doing on this site, so at this time, no I don't have one, but I hope to work on the one I have over the summer and switch to only my own images.So by next school year, or possibly sooner there will be a few more on the EM spectrum unit.

Take a look at what is already for sale at TPT, then use your own judgment and go from there. It's not an exact science, I'm afraid. Good luck to you!

I am unable to see the samples at all. I have difficulty evaluating this product. Recently I purchased a "glossary of terms" when I was unable to view a product so I am more careful and try to ensure that I can view a file to evaluate it before purchsing it.

ivyhil, I emailed teacherspayteachers to try to get help with your printing problem. I'm thrilled you purchased three of my worksheet sets. Are there any other science subjects you would be interested in ordering worksheet sets for? I have many other sets but I just joined teacherspayteachers and have only begun to upload them. If I knew what you might be interested in I would upload those first.

That should not be happening. Have you asked teacherspayteachers about the problem? I guess I could email them to you although we need to figure out why the problem is happening so we can make it work the way teacherspatteachers is supposed to. Thank you for purchasing. I'll ask teacherspayteachers as well and see if we can fix this.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a 29-year-veteran of a middle school science classroom. An Eagle Scout and veteran science teacher, I was born in Tucson in 1958 but consider Sierra Vista, Arizona, my hometown. I have a B.S. from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and an M.A. from United States International University in San Diego. From playing the lead in dinner theater comedy and leading a month-long wilderness backpacking expedition for the National Outdoor Leadership School, to studying wild killer whales in the Puget Sound and scaling the heights of California's Mt. Whitney, I enjoy a wide variety of pastimes. A SAMLA Middle Level Educator of the Year and NAU Distinguished Education Alumni Award winner, I still make Sierra Vista my home base where I taught in a public middle school. My first novel, "Adventures In Spacetime," was published by Dan River Press in 1996. My second novel, "Duck Egg Blue," was published by Prometheus Books in 1999. Since that book's release, I have been busy with speaking engagements from California to Texas, across the Southwest, educating groups about First Amendment issues including censorship, religious discrimination, and the creationism versus evolution controversy. My latest adventure was cage-diving with great white sharks for the launch episode of Dreamchasers, a new reality TV series on A&E. I'm also a photographer and sell stock photography on several online sites.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Variety is the key
