zope/Extensions is not part of the sys path.
To find out what it is part of it write an externa method like this:

import sys
def findstuffout():
    return '<br>'.join(sys.path)

If you want to include your own module, write a script like this:

import sys
sys.path.append(r'/home/tom/py/mymodule')
from mymodule import FatCalculator
def calculateFat(n):
    return FatCalculator.run(n)

This assumes that you have a folder called /home/tom/py/mymodule and
in it a file called
FatCalculator.py with a function in it called run().

For more advanced usage than this I strongly recommend that you write
a Python Product.
