Looking through some sagemath tutorial, they seem to use jupyter notebook to run sagemath?
Edit: I think sagemath use web browser as a GUI, so I guess to do this we have to make it work with Firefox Flatpak as well.

Yes, the GUI for sage runs in a browser. With the deb backage, running
sage -n=jupyter
will launch both the sagemath backend and a jupyter notebook in the user’s default browser.
