```Try something like the following

copdat\$degrees <- c(1:180)

﻿Colleagues,

Here is my code which plots sin(x) vs x, for angles between 0 and 180
degrees.

library(ggplot2)
library(REdaS)
copdat\$degrees <- c(0,45,90,135,180)

ggplot(copdat,aes(x=degrees,y=sin_x))+
geom_point(size = 2)+ geom_line()+
theme_cowplot()+xlab("x")+
ylab("sin(x)")+
scale_x_continuous(breaks=seq(0,180,30))+
ggtitle("sin(x) vs x\nx is in degrees")

My trig students would prefer a curved line plot similar to what can be
plotted with Excel smooth line functionality.
I wanted to provide a relatively simple R script using ggplot to do this
without having to resort to fitting a sine curve to these points.

Some guidance would be appreciated.
