Calculus teachers draw the following plot frequently on the board: not just one branch of $\arcsin$ but rather several of them: i.e., the plot of $y=\sin(x)$ for $-2\pi \leq x \leq 2 \pi$ flipped about the 45 degree line. The following Sage commands construct this:

Code

v = [(sin(x),x) for x in srange(-2*float(pi),2*float(pi),0.1)]
line(v)
