To Print: Right click on the image and choose "Open link in a new window". When the image comes up in the new window, Right click on it again and choose "Print". (Note: The page that prints will be smaller than the full sized regular page. I'm not sure how to change that, but at least you're able to get the homework if for any reason you need to)
