Students interested in seeing similar courses should look at the websites for 6.042, 6.006, and 6.046 at MIT. There are also several websites which contain algorithms problems for solution, which could make good practice: see the USACO Training Program Gateway, TopCoder, the Sphere Online Judge, Z-Trening, and the UVA Online Judge. You can take a crash course in Python 3.0 here (note the lecture notes above were prepared with Python 2.6 in mind, and there are some differences), and the readings here may also be helpful in learning Python.
