What is Area-Weighted Mean Patch Size?

I'm in a graduate-level Landscape Ecology course and keep running across/having to use the metric of Area-Weighted Mean Patch Size. We compute it in Fragstats but the professor uses the term in lecture, too. Can you explain what it means?

I asked the professor and because of the language barrier, he just read the definition from the textbook. Looking it up online and in Landscape Ecology books has made me feel like I understand it enough to use the phrase in a lab report but I'm not really getting it. Also, I don't have any experience with statistics, which it seems those explanations rely on.
