How can I write an introduction to this showing linkage between the various topics and hook potential students to do this course? What is the motivation on covering these topics?

Modular arithmetic alone is quite easy. During my search I came across some pages which provided a short and typical introduction:

http://www.acm.ciens.ucv.ve/main/entrenamiento/material/ModularArithmetic-Presentation.pdfhttps://euclid.ucc.ie/MATHENR/MathCircles_files/2nd and 3rd year Maths Circles/ModularArithmetic.pdf

I would take a few of those small examples and then turn to RSA as the major application here. Other interesting applications are error correcting codes or encryption in general.
