To write a polynomial in standard form, arrange the terms in descending order of degree and combine like terms. The given polynomial in standard form is: (3a^3b - 4ab^2 + a^2).

The degree of a polynomial is determined by the highest exponent present. In this polynomial, the highest exponent is (3), so it is a cubic polynomial.

The number of terms in a polynomial is the count of separate parts separated by addition or subtraction signs. In this polynomial, there are (3) terms.
