If you're not in a hurry, you should be able to
cut it with any saw that's got teeth close enough together
to have more than one tooth on the thickness of the material.
Tipping the saw closer to horizontal like a back-saw will
help if your saw is marginal.
Failing that, sandwiching the plastic between boards when
you snap it should help keep the break from wandering off
Thanks for all the MANY helpful responses.
At the suggestion of one user, I ended up taking the easy way
out. Instead of going back to Home Depot, I went to Lowes where they
not only sell but also cut plexiglass. They had a nice panel-cutter
type machine but even so the guy ended up breaking a sheet before
taking the time to score it enough to make clean cuts. The good thing
is that this time the breakage was on him. And also, he didn't even
charge me for the 4 cuts required!!!
