Is Eureka Math intended to be followed like a script?

Our curriculum is not intended to be followed as a script, instead as guide to offer support to teachers in the classroom. For example, the “vignettes” of teacher-student interactions included in Eureka Math are exemplars of instructional situations provided by the teachers who have crafted our curricula. These vignettes should be used, not as a script, but as a basis for study and discussion among professionals. We expect—indeed, we encourage—teachers to customize Eureka Math instructional materials and make them their own.
