Math for the Digital Age looks great for getting both discrete math concepts
and Python into a HS.  That is a very different emphasis than physical
sciences.  If you are specifically doing physics and other continuous math,
I would not recommend Math for the Digital Age.  It does not appear to cover
any concepts used by physical scientists, like vectors and speed.  I'm not
sure what would be a good Physics+Python intro.  There may be some
suggestion on the SciPy pages.
