Try this using `max_symbolic`

. It won't do as much as you might like, but you can plot it, at least.

Edit - didn't have time to include the code earlier:

```
plot(max_symbolic(x,1),(x,-5,5),ymin=0)
```

Try using a lambda function.

This works for me:

```
sage: plot(lambda x: max(x, 1), (-5, 5), ymin=0)
```
