Will we be marked off if we don’t have the correct number of sig figs?

Yes, that's correct. My TA mentioned that if we had the right answer but wrong sig figs, we would lose partial credit.

It won't be a large amount of points taken off but yes you should have the correct amount of sig figs to get full credit. Some questions even have 1 sig fig in them.
