CSP Unit 3 Lesson 5.9a
/* Code generated by RoboBlockly v2.5 */
/* Problem Statement: 
    Our next goal is to create a program to trace the diamond
    shaped figure shown in blue on the grid. We will take it
    step by step (literally). Looking at the figure, we see
    that it can be traced by a number of step movements--each
    one being a move forward, then a move to the left, and then
    a right turn to face forward again to get ready for another
    step. So the first task is to create a function named
    drawStep that will have the robot trace out just one step
    movement. Then call that function so the robot traces the
    first step, forward and then to the left of its starting
    point. Note that the side length of each step is 4 units,
    and the robot should end facing up (positive y direction).

Problem Statement:

Now that we have the drawStep function, we note that the bottom left side of the diamond figure consists of three steps. So use the pre-placed "do something" code block to create a function named drawSide that contains code that calls the drawStep function three times, and then add the code block that calls the drawSide function to the main code at the top . When you run the code, the robot should trace out the bottom left side of the diamond figure.
