Try this:
>>> import math
>>> a = 0
>>> a = sqrt(34)
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
NameError: There is no variable named 'sqrt'
>>> a = math.sqrt(34)
>>> a
5.8309518948453007

or this:
>>> from math import *
>>> a = sqrt(34)
>>> a
5.8309518948453007

HTH,
Rüdiger
