Temple University's Mathematics Owlympiad is Philadelphia's largest math competition for high-school students. The goal of the competition is to promote mathematics and introduce students to career paths in applied mathematics.

Organized by the Fox School’s Risk, Insurance and Healthcare Management Department and the Sigma Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS), the annual event features three rounds of competition to test the skills of the 11th graders in attendance. Any public, parochial or private high school in the greater Philadelphia area may bring up to two teams, comprised of four students each.
The competition is comprised of a written examination, group problem solving, and a championship lightning round. The contest covers topics in areas such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, matrices and pre-calculus.
