Carole Garfield in a comment asked for help with teaching the multiplication of mixed fractions using the distributive property. If I just want to teach students how to multiply mixed fractions I would not use distribution as in this example.
None of these steps are difficult except maybe the long division and things move quickly.
If I had to teach multiplication with distribution, I would use the multiplication square that some of my students seem to like. This is the same square they may have used to learn two digit multiplication which also uses the distributive property. An example would go something like this.
[I just found this error (4/26/16). The answer in the second example should be the same as in the first: ten and three fourteenths.]
This method takes more steps and is a bit tedious.
