Classify Polynomials: Based on Number of Terms

Categorize the polynomial expressions as monomial, binomial, trinomial or polynomial based on the number of terms they contain. A wide range of polynomials consisting up to six terms is presented here.

Classify Polynomials: Based on Degree – Level 1

Get high school students to name the polynomials with the highest exponent being 0 as constant, being 1 as linear, 2 as quadratic, and 3 as cubic.

Classify Polynomials: Based on Degree – Level 2

Extend beyond cubic polynomials, and recognize expressions with degree 4 as quartic, 5 as quintic, and 6 as the sixth degree.

Classify Polynomials: Based on Number of Terms and Degrees

Use these printable worksheets to reinforce the classification of polynomials based on their degree and the number of terms. Order them first by degree followed by the term.

Matching Polynomials – Type 1

Know the types of polynomials better! Match each polynomial to its name based on its degree in part A and based on the number of terms in part B.

Matching Polynomials – Type 2

Pair up each polynomial expression to its name based on the degree as well as the number of terms displayed on either side.
