Personally, I think the approach Cleve Moler ( of Mathworks) takes in
the first chapter of "Numerical Computing in Matlab" is the best I
have seen.

http://www.mathworks.com/moler/chapters.html

What he does is, he takes a central concept ( Fibonacci numbers and
Golden Ratio). Explains everything about them using interactive
examples in Matlab-scripts. This approach helps a reader to learn when
to use a function and how to use it. So if one can explain a
lightweight scientific-computing concept using Scipy / Numpy and
exhausts most of the functions that would be a great tutorial.

Just my 2 cents.
