Downloading Sage / Different versions of Sage

Forgive me for my ignorance I'm brand new to Sage.

I successfully downloaded the app version of Sage for my mac about 2 minutes ago. When I click on sage it opens Jupyter in a new browser where I can open a new document and start using Sage. My question is: Is there a version of Sage that doesn't run through Jupyter but is its own self-contained application? If Sage is only run through Jupyter, does this mean that an internet connection is always required to use Sage?

The Sage you have installed is running on your computer, and require no internet connection. When you use it using the Jupyter notebook, it launches a Jupyter server on your machine and connects your web browser to it. You will see that the url in the url bar is http://localhost:8888/tree where "localhost" indicates a connection to your computer, and not the internet.

You can run the Sage read-eval-print loop (or command-line interface) in the terminal (run sage in the terminal or change directory to where Sage is installed and run ./sage) or using the legacy SageNB notebook (run sage -n sagenb or ./sage -n sagenb), or using the Jupyter notebook (run sage -n jupyter or ./sage -n jupyter). All of them run locally on your computer.
