I'm partial to the Strang book:
It's more a senior level text, not sure what level you need.
Conceptually, it is one of the clearest texts I've come across - but
you need to figure out the coding on your own.
I've floated the idea of writing a "python complements" to this or any
similar book that a group might get behind. If you're doing a course,
that could be a nice way to organize such an enterprise. Let me (and
the list) know if you do write / want help writing anything like that.
