This alone can usually make quite a difference and students will stay interested. I believe that you, as a Math Methods teacher (or, as a student in such a course) need to openly address this issue. The teacher will just have to try a different approach to help, or will just have to explain more about his/her initial approach. Once, some years ago when I was a graduate student teaching a night course in third-semester calculus, I got the twenty-four hour flu about an hour before class started.
