comment When should I use “graph” vs. “plot”?
Yeah, I'm tired and writing a German essay while listening to Korean music. Who knows where my brain's at? Apparently not where I keep my definition of continuity. Editing, and probably not for the last time...Also, plotting all of the points of a function whose domain is all real numbers would take a while...

comment When should I use “graph” vs. “plot”?
@mgb: It's possible. I would understand "plot y as a function of x," but it sounds a little funny to me. I would use "graph" there preferentially. Still, I would understand it. It could also be a math/physics thing. My calc III professor never tires of warning us about the inherent dangers of using physicists' notation. XP I'm sure he'd be happy to extend it to language. :)

That's my impression, but I have nothing to back it up except my own observations, which is why I left a comment instead of an answer.

...In all of my math classes (I'm a math major), we talk about plotting points, but we graph functions. You can plot specific points in the graph of a function, but you don't just plot a function. Generally, plot, as a noun, refers to a set of points that may or may not be connected by a line, but that cannot be represented as a function. I don't know if there's some technical ground behind this, but if there is, one of us is being confused...
