8 questions, each with multiple parts. The test in total is 110 points, accounting for 22 percent of our overall grade.

Do you guys know how many points total you can get taken off of the midterm if you miss sig figs and units, but get all of the math/concepts right?

One of the TA’s said it will be around 4 points for sig figs.

I believe it needs to be in pen just like previous tests.

Looking at previous midterms, you usually lose 1 or 2 points per problem for sig figs or units if you mess either up. So for a question say Q4A, Q4B, and Q4C, you could lose anywhere from 1 to 12 points over the span of 3 questions if you're not careful.
