CubicPolynomial where the highest exponent is 3

LinearPolynomial where the highest exponent is one. Often times the exponent is invisible.

Classifying By Degree

Write the polynomial in standard form with the highest exponent first. The highest exponent is the degree!

x^5

x^4

x^3

x^2

6

Degree=Highest Exponent

QuinticPolynomial where the highest exponent is 5

x

ConstantPolynomial where the only term is a number.

QuarticPolynomial where the highest exponent is 4

QuadraticPolynomial where the highest exponent is 2

Classifying By Term

Count the number of terms. Terms are separated by a plus or minus sign.

Monomial: Only one term

Binomial: Two terms

Trinomial: Three terms

Polynomial: More than 3 terms
