Test for Convex

Is there an easy way to test if a polygon is convex? I am writing a destructive terrain game and was wondering if there was an easy way to test if a polygon is convex or not so that I dont have to deconstruct all of the polygons in the terrain. The algorithm has to be faster then just deconstructing it though, so that I get a performance benifit at all.

There are several ways of checking for polygon convexity. I've included one in Vertices called IsConvex().
