Sometimes one must wrap the first argument of Plot and similar functions in Evaluate (see sections 1.9.1 and 2.5.5 of The Mathematica Book). A package called (PlotFunctions.m) is provided that changes the evaluation procedure of Plot, ContourPlot, DensityPlot, ParametricPlot, ParametricPlot3D, Plot3D and Play so that one never needs to use Evaluate on an argument of these functions. The modified versions usually produce the intended result, and a simple method is provided for returning to the built in version. Examples and explanation are provided in the notebook (PlotFunctions.nb).
