Mathematica defaults to displaying what it considers the
interesting aspects of a plot for all plots. You can over ride
Mathematica's default behavior by including a PlotRange->All
directive in your plot command.

Often the default behavior is more informative than what you get
by including a PlotRange->All directive.

=46or example, compare the results of

Plot[Exp[x] + Sin[x], {x, -10, 5}]


Plot[Exp[x] + Sin[x], {x, -10, 5},PlotRange->All]

The default shows the oscillation that occurs for negative x
while the oscillation is virtually invisible when forcing the
plot to include the entire plot range.
