This paper addresses the use of multiple sensory modalities and affective strategies in learning mathematics. A case study is presented where these domains are used to design a mathematical ratio system. We adopted a multimodal approach used by other researchers, and applied our proposed design methods to create the MADE Ratio system. We then recruited participants to test the usability of the system. Our findings were that the design methods were effective, but we also gained insight about how they could be improved.
