If you are purchasing for a department or multiple teachers, you will need to purchase multiple licenses. I offer a 10% discount on purchases for 2-5 licenses. For more than 5 licenses, please contact me. this sheet has more information: biology roots licensing info.

If you purchased from my website at biology-roots.com, many of the errors are extraction errors or pdf viewer errors.
"Path too long"- this typically indicates that you are trying to extract in a protected folder on a Windows computer. Try to extract onto a user profile folder such as your Desktop or Downloads.
IF you are on a Windows and see a folder titled "_MACOSX" - delete or ignore it. Do not try to access the files from it. I work on a Mac and sometimes these files show up on Windows downloads.
Before contacting me, please try one of these free websites to extract your zip files as they often work seamlessly:
For PDF viewing errors, please be sure you have the latest software of your PDF viewer installed. The most popular PDF viewer is Adobe Reader (free). Please download it and try to open the PDF again.
GOOGLE DRIVE LINK SAYS FILE DOES NOT EXIST AS OF SEPTEMBER 2021, GOOGLE HAS ROLLED OUT NEW SECURITY FEATURES. SOME SCHOOL DISTRICTS BLOCK GOOGLE'S FORCE COPY LINKS THAT ARE PROVIDED IN DIGITAL RESOURCES. THE SOLUTION TO THIS IS TO TRY ON A HOME COMPUTER AND ADD THE RESOURCE TO YOUR ONLINE CLASSROOM FROM THERE. IF THIS STILL DOES NOT WORK, CAREFULLY EXAMINE THE LINK FOR SPACES, ODD CHARACTERS, ETC. BY COMPARING IT AS IT APPEARS IN YOUR BROWSER TO THE LINK PROVIDED IN THE PDF.
