We write a first word to represent the highest exponent, or degree, of a polynomial, and we write a second word to tell how many terms the polynomial has. Degree 0 is constant, degree 1 is linear, degree 2 is quadratic, degree 3 is cubic, degree 4 is 4th degree or quartic, degree 5 is fifth degree or quintic, etc. If there is one term, it's a monomial, two terms is a binomial, three terms is a trinomial, and four or more terms is called a polynomial.
