One of the hardest parts of physics problems for many students is identifying what variables/knowns are given. Oftentimes those variables come in an "implied" form and are not explicitly laid out, making it even more complicated. For example, a ball that is "dropped" has an initial velocity of zero, because it is dropped (from rest), not thrown. Students have to be able to make that connection when reading a problem and identify all "implied values." Fortunately, there are several of these values which are commonly used, and with this activity, students will identify each and then later have the ability to open their notebook and identify them easily with the flip of a tab! :)
