Could you described in more detail what is kind of effect you want to illustrate?

E.g. direction of B field related to a long wire or magnetic field vector distribution or ....

It will be better if you can provide a simple diagram or your teaching plan (how it will be used!).

ampere law as an applet? what is there to simulate?

anyway, i found this, could be a good start

Ampere's Law allows us to easily calculate magnetic fields in highly symmetric situations, much as Gauss' Law allowed us to determine electric fields.

Ampere's Law states that the line integral of B ยท ds around a closed (i.e., complete) loop is proportional to the current passing through the loop:
