Why these topics?

Why are gcd, Diophantine equations, primes, Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, modular arithmetic, Fermat's Little Theorem, Euler's Theorem, primitive roots, quadratic residues, Pythagorean triples and so on fundamental in an elementary number theory course?
Every elementary number theory course has these topics.

Why not? Why does every analysis course have continuity, integration, differentiability? Why not?

I'm really unsure what kind of answer you expect here.
