you want math courses, not programming courses

CS degrees have lots of math in their first two years

Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Math ...

that being said, I don't know of any courses in math that would impress a selection committee

so I think maybe do an Introduction to Python course

these two are specializations

-- this one is a sequence of 4 courses

-- this one is a sequence of 5 courses

Applied Data Science with Python Specialization

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/data-science-python#courses

each specialization is self paced so you can work as fast as you can

you should pick one specialization and do at least the first course

(the first course in each is an introduction to python)

continue and complete the specialization if you want to

or after completing the first course in the specialization do this project

COVID19 Data Analysis Using Python

https://www.coursera.org/projects/covid19-data-analysis-using-python

I think what might impress them is this specialization

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/discrete-mathematics

but it requires basic knowledge of python

so maybe rush through one of the Introduction to Python courses, do the covid project and start the math specialazation and do as much of it as you can
