It had made the page really tiny and I can't change it...I don't know how to change it. Can you help me? I am in school and I have assignments due! This is really making me upset.

If this happens again simply press and release each Ctrl key one at a time and it should be fixed. Sometimes Windows looses track of whether the Ctrl, Shift, and Alt keys are pressed or not.

or it could be a stuck key...

in which case tapping it a few times normally frees it (if its not broken).

if you mean that webpages are tiny then go to view>text size

It was something that made the whole page really tiny. I restarted the computer, but that didn't help. What ended up doing the fix was a little button on the ribbon that made the page go back to 100%. Who knows why it was the way it was. I don't even care. I just needed to turn in an assignment.
