Do we measure Significant figures only at the end of a problem?

Yes, you should not round numbers using sig figs until you reach your final answer so that you have the most accurate answer.

Techincally, yes. You should not be rounding using sig figs during your calculations to get the most accurate answer. Once you have a final answer, then use sig figs.

If you go to the class website there is a page with more information called "Everything you want to know about significant figures," under the Math Assistance tab. You might find that helpful.
