So while I sit here

and feel like I'm wasting my life waiting hour by hour for her to finish one page of math (and yes she knows how to do just wont apply herself) I brought my laptop out. Figured if nothing else I can work here. I'm getting so irritated thou. I have to figure out something!

I think the waiting is a good idea, although boring for you. It is best for her to do it on her own and perhaps is something that is a little bit of fun happens after the math, that would speed her up a bit. If you see at some point she is finishing the homework more quickly, then praise her for it, and really make a big deal out of the praise.
@Ithink I still remember practically begging my kids to practice piano or doing maths. I explained to them the reason why blah blah blah... Now that they are older, they are quite pleased and condescending to their friends who are not good like them in these subjects.
