I'm using NumPy in a PhD level microeconomics course. The 
students are using numpy primarily for the matrix class. In 
the past I have used GAUSS.  Programming is a fairly small 
component of the course.  Although most of the students have 
no programming background, they are finding Python and NumPy 
surprisingly easy to use.
