    Jeff,
    I use "forgiving division" with my 4th and 5th graders that is very much like your double division method. The only difference I can see at first glance is the 1, 2, 4, 8 part of it. The rest looks just like what we do. I am very impressed with the doubling the divisor step before starting. I will try that with my students tomorrow! Thank you for sharing.
    Elaine
