Currently I’m taking “Dinosaur Paleontology” course for free,
I tend to buy the course after being sure that I am interested in it and am able to finish it.
Now I just finished my second week and it shows that there’s 5 assignments due this week.
(as below pic)
I found these text when I was on Coursera APP (on the phone), but the reminding text does not show up on my computer.
I wonder is it correct that if I don’t buy the course then I would not know whether there’s assignment to do or not?
And if I do buy the course after finishing the half of this course, will those assignments still be expired and causes the problem of getting the certificate?
I’m kinda confused and worried. Please let me know if anyone has an answer for me.

No, there are no assignments or quizzes that you can not do without buying. When you are enrolled in the "Full Course, No Certificate" mode, it means every item is available to you. There are no hidden assignments or quizzes. Everything is available to you even though you have not paid. Regarding the message, maybe it refers to the upcoming weeks, too. Or it could be simply an error. In any case, as I mentioned earlier, there is nothing here to be worried about. But, if you like more assistance, feel free to contact the support team here:
