Have you ever wished for a game that you can do anytime during math? hm... why not try apollonian gaskets? as we will take up the challenge of infinates and animals.

#### Transcript of Elephants, Camels and...apollonian gaskets?

Elephants, Camels
and...
Apollonian gaskets? You know what an elephant is, as well as a camel! But what is an Apollonian gasket you may ask? Simple. Think of it as a math game. Don't worry, no calculators needed!
*horrible way to get you to laugh*
*now you laugh.* For example! Create a circle or, any shape to your liking! Now, try to draw the biggest circle that you can fit in the shape.
Note: doesn't have to be perfect! Just let
your hand guide you. If its a circle, you might want to draw 2-4 circles that are the same size, but smaller than the original, to be able to fit into the circle. Now, try drawing the biggest circle in the space left, the gaps between the big circle(s), and continue to do so with the remaining space. Look's interesting, no? Congratulations, you have made a pattern or now known, an apollonian gasket! This leads you to the infinite. But wait, aren't we talking about apollonian gaskets?
