Lecture 6  00:44  
One key characteristic of a differential equation is its order. 

Lecture 7  01:25  
Once you have a solution to a differential equation, verifying a solution is easy: simply substitute the function, together with all necessary derivatives, back into the equation and see if the equality holds.
