PDF and JPEG incorrect size when pasted

Hi, I am a total beginner on CS6, but would appreciate any help given!
I am following an online tutorial to digitize a sewing pattern. Step 1 is to scan the pieces and copy/paste into Photoshop. My problem is that whenever I copy/paste the scanned items (either PDF or JPEG) the image size is enormous compared to my properly sized canvas. The pasted layers need to be letter sized for a later step in the tutorial. 
I use my scanner all the time and have no reason to believe it's a scanner setting. 
Can anyone offer help? Thanks!

Double check the resolution , pixel sizes, and physical sizes (related to resolution) of the documents.
It sounds like you have a mismatch between them.
