Summary: We review an axiomatic definition of the area of plane figures with area axioms, discuss what the area axioms mean, and analyze the contents about the area of plane figures in elementary school mathematics from the viewpoint of area axioms. So, we evaluate which aspects of the concept of area are emphasized or deemphasized in the current elementary school mathematics textbooks.
