It was interesting for me but hard to follow the teacher and to understand the material. it was missing information in the beginning in order to understand his lesson better. When we were trying to solve the problems and work with a friend it give us the opportunity to practice what we had learned and a good way for most of us to participate in class.
I felt like a student in class who was having a hard time understanding new material with no introduction to the terminology needed to understand everything, and needed more examples and activities. That's why the teacher needs to be much more alert and paying attention to everyone's needs in class, because everyone learns differently
until they come to a certain level of understanding and comes to class with certain preconceived ideas.  More dialogue, activities and practicing in class in order to engage in the lesson would be more helpful.
