comment drawing 2-D coordinates with 2 simple line in it
Perhaps you should consider using the image you just posted. It will have some drawbacks compared to an image drawn with e.g. TikZ, but it will undoubtedly be the fastest solution if time is of the essence.

comment Changing the behavior of $$ but not of $
Note: In my previous comment, I wrote \equation when I meant eqnarray; in particular, I did not mean to imply that the equation environment is somehow flawed.

comment Changing the behavior of $$ but not of $
@David Carlisle: It has to do with grouping; \equation, etc. works (as much as it ever does), as does {$$ ... $$}. (There's an \aftergroup inside an \everydisplay.)

Students trying to typeset their theses with minimal effort may not read the documentation.

comment Changing the behavior of $$ but not of $
@egreg: I don't, but I'm writing a document class for the use of others who may be less enlightened, so it should at least throw an error to teach them.

comment Solid of revolution about arbitrary axis
You might also check out Asymptote, which has better support for 3d than TikZ does. Surfaces of revolution are discussed in my tutorial in section 3.6 (currently page 61).

comment Changing the behavior of $$ but not of $
Motivation: In a document class I'm writing, direct use of $$ changes the interline spacing of all subsequent text. So it's a much worse practice than usual.
