An IP address is the number that internet routers use to find your computer,
so that webpages are sent to your machine when you request them, etc.
A static IP address always stays the same, and web-serving computers and
other machines that need to be found tend to use these.
A dynamic IP address might change each time you connect to the Internet and
is usually provided by ISP's for home-use, as this means not so many IP
addresses are needed by that ISP.
Unless you intend to run some kind of server, like a webserver etc, you wont
need a static IP address.
