What is important to teach students is that they should consider selecting
a transformation from among the (ordered) set:
-1/x, -1/sqrt(x), log, sqrt(x), x (no transformation), x**2

This is exactly what was covered in Chapter 9 of the first editon of
Andy Siegel's _Statistics and Data Analysis: An Introduction_. I know
of no other treatment at the beginner level.
