By means of Riccati transformation technique, we establish some new oscillation criteria for the second-order nonlinear delay dynamic equations (p(t)(xΔ(t))γ)Δ+q(t)f(x(τ(t)))=0 on a time scale T, here γ1 is a quotient of odd positive integers with p and q real-valued positive rd-continuous functions defined on T.
