MATLAB Academy can help you learn the basics of MATLAB. Also the Getting Started section of the doc, as Jose-Luis suggested.
For this specific question, you'll need to:
  1. create a vector of x values from -2 to 5.
  2. create a corresponding vector of y values by evaluating the function.
  3. plot y as a function of x.
  4. maybe pretty up the graph a bit.
For 2 you'll need to know about array operations. For 4 you can use xlabel, ylabel, title, xlim, ylim, and/or axis.
As Jose-Luis mentioned, if you need the roots exactly, you can use fzero, but that seems a bit advanced for HW#1. Because the function is a polynomial, you could also use polyval (for part 2) and roots. But, again, that seems more than is necessary.

You don't need to specify the domain to the plot function, just the x values and their corresponding y values (in that order): plot(x,y)
If you want to adjust the axis limits that MATLAB chooses, use the xlim and/or ylim functions (use the doc to see how they work).
