I would like someone to introduce me to ODE and answer questions as they arise.

ODE is the part of calculus where both integration as well as differentiation are used..
simple equation:
dy/dx = f(x) : degree 1, order 1.
ORDER of eqn. : order of highest derivative
DEGREE of eqn.: index or power or raised to the highest order derivative
e.g. (dy/dx)^3 + (d^2y/dx^2)^2 : order 2, degree 2 (not 3)
Now,
e.g. eqn: dy/dx = sin(x)
solution=> dy = sin(x). dx
=> y = integration[sin(x)]dx = -cos(x) + const.

One step ahead:
dy/dx = f(x,y) : order 1, degree 1
e.g dy/dx = sin(x)/{sec(y).tan(y)}
=> sec(y).tan(y) dy = sin(x) dx
=> int[sec(y).tan(y)] dy = int[sin(x)] dx
=> sec(y) = ...
