Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm looking for a good introduction on quantum group theory for someone who has already had a semester class on group theory. I'll be putting together a short paper (5 pages) on the topic with the intended audience of college math majors. My naive understanding is that symmetry and interaction properties of subatomic particles can be modeled using special kinds of groups. I need a resource that can help me take the step from simple groups you study in a math course to how one can apply them to quantum mechanics (simple examples would be great too).

Any help is appreciated!

Great idea you have here !
A major book in this context :
Howard Georgi, "Lie Algebras in Particle Physics" Addison Wesley Frontiers in Physics Series.

Thanks for the pointers! Some of those resources are about the level I'm looking for.
