Simple Two-Dimensional Line Plot

## Description

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:
