For example, I have:

CharacteristicPolynomial[m, x]
0.5 + 0.1 x + x^2


Plot[CharacteristicPolynomial[m,x], {x,-1, 1}] 

gives errors.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Plot has HoldAll attribute so you need to Evaluate it first or add the option , Evaluated -> True. – Kuba Nov 15 '13 at 9:34
I think it should be marked as a duplicate of Evaluate or not or expression evaluation in Plot. – Kuba Nov 15 '13 at 9:43
