Frégion WAire (géométrie)
  • En mathématiques, l'aire est une grandeur relative à certaines figures du plan ou des surfaces en géométrie dans l'espace.
  • Le développement de cette notion de maths est lié à la rationalisation du calcul de grandeur de surfaces agricoles, par des techniques d'arpentage. Cette évaluation assortie d'une unité de mesure est aujourd'hui plutôt appelée superficie.
  • Informellement, l'aire permet d'exprimer un rapport de grandeur d'une figure relativement à une unité, par le biais de découpages et recollements, de déplacements et retournements et de passage à la limite par approximation.
