Understand that the History Department’s requirement that all history courses have a minimum of 25% of the course grade (the final letter grade) based on writing means you must do at least some of the writing assignments.

This example from a 1000-point course = 700 points for objective work + 300 points for specific writing assignments may help:
If you did this:
· No writing assignments
· And you only attempted objective work (700 possible points)
Then the math would show:
Each example above is just too risky.
You must try to write useful, factual information.
