Submission + - How to make Mathematics interesting? 1

dsb writes: I love the mathematics stories, askslashdot, explanations here on slashdot and elsewhere. But quite often some of the material is just way over my head. For example, the recent submission about someones quest to study waves? Personally, I found it fascinating. So my question is how do we teach maths to be interesting to those that 'have to take college algebra' so they can get their degrees?
