Students Conducting Research


This site was developed in part to act as a resource for students studying Dr. Gardner’s work. Over the years, we have received thousands of inquires from students all over the world requesting help with homework assignments and research projects. Dr. Gardner is truly thankful that so many people have taken an interest in his work and has attempted to respond to as many inquiries as possible.

Due to the overwhelming volume of inquires we receive, we are unable to respond to many of them. Often, we find that the questions being asked via email are already answered on this web site or in one of Dr. Gardner’s books. We encourage you to review the below information prior to emailing Dr. Gardner.
