thank you all for all your help
And since someone expressed interest in the conclusion, I'll explain it although its not strictly programmatic.
In the end I decided what she needed most was a reinforcing of everything that's come before. I bought two books off of amazon highly rated for making math fun, and practical, and for thoroughly covering all topics from basic arithmetic through middle school math. I'm rewarding the completion of chapters with "points" she can use to buy things like getting out of chores, or new ds games once she collects enough. I got the points idea from a talk on TED where it was mentioned a professor at a university increased student performance by turning it into a game , where you got points for completing assignments, scoring well on tests, etc. As an aside, its worked wonders. I took my kids from complaining about having to walk the dogs, to fighting over who could clean up the accidents on the carpet for ten points.
I'm going to allow the use of computer aid once she has a grasp of how to do something on paper. This idea is also from a TED talk by wolfram himself, suggesting that forcing people to work through everything by hand was stunting their performance and interest in math, and that technology has evolved so that knowing how to do it by hand should take a back seat to accelerating through all the various fields of math, and being able to apply it with the aid of a machine.
In the end, once she has progressed far enough to make it interesting, I think will use construct afterall, and have her complete challenges that require a firm grasp of logic to solve. Maybe once she gets the basics down, I will have her construct a logo clone to mess around with
