Is this correct when trying to say "his only interest and passion is
mathematics"?

I found eg:
----
The selling of "free trade": NAFTA, Washington, and the subversion ...

John R. MacArthur - 2001 - 400 pages - Preview

Rahm Emanuel attributed Gingrich's surprising energy to one thing:
"All he is about, is power."

but I am not sure if they jive enough.

You could say it that way, but it works better in the second form -
"All he is about is mathematics."
If you mean correspond, I think you want gibe or jibe, not jive, which
is music or bullshit.
