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

mathematics"?

I found eg:

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.
