Once you have a few of the basics down (using the resources others
have suggested), a good way to practice those skills is to visit
Project Euler (http://projecteuler.net/) or The Python Challenge
(http://www.pythonchallenge.com/).  Project Euler is a site with math
problems that can be best solved using basic programming skills.  The
first problem asks for the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below
1000.  The problems build in difficulty and in the programming skills
you need.

The Python Challenge (best completed using  version 2.7 of Python) is
hard to explain, but a lot of fun to do.

Good luck!

Brian
