Default How do you open PDF files with Word 2007?

I must figure out how to open PDF files in Word 2007. I am taking on line
classes and work is shared in PDF format. I have a new Dell Inspiron laptop
that came loaded with Windows 7. I have had it a week and need help. I tried
to download the Microsoft PDF add on, but it did not work. I can only read
code when I open incoming PDF files. The default program is listed as Word.
What am I doing wrong?

You must use a PDF reader to open PDF files, not Word. Such as Adobe or
Foxit. Download and install one of them.

As Tom states, you use a .pdf viewer to view .pdf files. My question is why
do you want to open them in Word? You can't edit them in .pdf format.
