In order to plot the function f(x) = a^x, where a<0, over a 
range of integer values of x, what plotting options would you
need to use with the Plot command? 

Specifying a plotting range of real numbers in the usual way,
as shown below, for example, presents problems because
Mathematica generates complex numbers for fractional exponents,
and these obviously cannot be plotted by Plot.

                 Plot[(-1)^x, {x, -5, 5}]
