I would start with Android Development since you are interested in Android Development. That track will cover everything you need to know to build an app.

The first video in the Android Development track is called "Introducing Android and Java".

And check out the first course's overview:

"This project covers the very basics of Android development. We will build a simple app that will serve up some fun facts when you tap on a button. We introduce the Java programming language, a tool for Android development called Android Studio, and some very basic concepts of the Android Software Development Kit, or SDK. By the end you will have a good idea of how a basic app works, and you will be armed with the knowledge to start building more."

Just dive in. You're trying to learn Android Development, I'd think you'd be thrilled that there is a track directly called Android Development.
