Will we be docked points for incorrect significant figures on quizzes and exams?

Always assume so. It's not really worth the whole point lost for not having the correct sig figs so I'd say just try to make it a habit when doing homework to double check sig figs and units before boxing your answer.

Yes most likely; always pay attention to and use correct sig figs in chemistry.

I remember last quarter the rule was minus one on a test, and minus .5 on a quiz.
