Constantin Marie Le Paige (March 9, 1852 – January 26, 1929) was a Belgian mathematician.

Born in Liège, Belgium, Le Paige began studying mathematics in 1869 at the University of Liège. After studying analysis under Professor Eugène Charles Catalan, Le Paige became a professor at the Université de Liège in 1882. While interested in astronomy and the history of mathematics, Le Paige mainly worked on the theory of algebraic form, especially algebraic curves and surface and more particularly for his work on the construction of cubic surfaces. Le Paige remained at the university until his retirement in 1922.
