For the matrix stuff, see Numeric Python:
I'm positive that it has functions for doing Matrix calculations like
determinant and rank stuff.
For 3d stuff, you have a few choices, and you can find out about them from
the Vaults of Parnassus:
In particular, you may want to check out VPython:
I haven't had too much experience with VPython myself, but I've heard that
it's a very nice module for doing visualization and 3d stuff.
You can look at one concrete application of Numeric Python and VPython:
Arthur Siegel's 'PyGeo' project applies both modules to spectacular
I hope this helps!
