Learn about inverse trig functions and what their graphs look like.
 Trig Graphs  A table of graphs of trig and inverse trig functions.
 What are inverse trig functions?
 What does inverse sin, inverse cos, and inverse tan mean?
 What does sin^1 theta mean?
 How do you graph inverse trig functions?
 What does the graph of y = inverse sin x look like?
 What quadrants are the inverse trig functions defined in?
 What is arcsin (1)?
 What is cot(sin^1(1/2)  cos^1(1))?
 How do you calculate values of inverse trig functions?
This lesson is a good explanation of inverse trig functions, what they mean, and how they are graphed. A topic that is often quite difficult to understand and put on paper is done in a very straightforward way.
I like it but it would be appropriate to talk about why we restrict the range on the inverse sine. Reminder of onetoone functions would help to fill in any gaps the viewer may have.
