I'm honestly surprised that more folks don't use this kind of
workflow. All the interactive work for my PhD was via IPython and
several classes and Python scripts I wrote. For plots I used Grace
with Nathan Gray's gracePlot.py and MayaVi for the 3D stuff.

Most of my talk will focus on showing how Python (plus
several useful modules) combined with C/C++/Fortran is one hell of a
combination for scientific computation. I think the math part is fun.
However it is not as generally useful (to the audience) as a good
demonstration of the amazing power of Python for scientific computing.
