Calculate if two following 2D vectors have a left or right rotation

I have 3 Points (x,y) that represent mouse movement (from Point 1 over Point 2 to Point 3).

The angle between the two lines (line between p1 and p2 & line between p2 and p3) can be caluculated with where a = [(p1.x - p2.x), (p1.y - p2.y)] and b = [(p3.x - p2.x), (p3.y - p2.y)]

But the angle is just the inner angle and doesn't tell me if the line rotates / moves left, straight or right.

Here my problem in a example: I want to calculate that the movement from p1 to p3 over p2 has a right rotation and the movement from p1 to p4 over p2 has a left rotation. Both have the same angle.

In other words: If you follow the vector a longer than point p2 is p3/p4 on the line, left of the line or right of the line.

How can i calculate that?

You can use the vector product of two vectors $\vec x\times \vec y$. In $2D$ it writes as $\vec x\times \vec y = x_1y_2-x_2y_1$. If this quantity is positive, then the rotation is in positive direction (anticlockwise), if it is zero, then the vectors are colinear (or at least one of them is a zero vector), and if it is negative, then the rotation goes in negative direction (clockwise).
